The Portland Literacy Council is an all-volunteer organization. Your donation will help maintain our volunteer-driven activities, deliver quality tutor training, and/or assist those in need with a scholarship for taking the GED exams. Donations can be vital in enabling the PLC to carry out and grow our valuable programs and events.

In this short video, Kris Magaurn, PLC chair, describes our program and how donations can help:
