About the Fund
Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County fund (est. 2019)
The Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County fund is a nonprofit investment fund established to support the charitable work of the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County.
The Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County has worked since 1989 to improve the quality of life in our community by promoting and achieving literacy. One in seven adults in our county is unable to read and understand information found in books, newspapers and manuals and nearly half of all third graders are not reading on grade level. Through extensive outreach and collaboration with a network of community partners including the School District of Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach County Library System, the Literacy Coalition strives to ensure that individuals who need to improve their literacy skills receive the help they need. By providing services to 27,000 adults, children and families each year through a dozen programs and many initiatives, the Literacy Coalition's goal is for every child and every adult in Palm Beach County to be able to read.
