About Manatee Literacy Council

Support Literacy

Empowering Adults Through Literacy


Your membership dues or your gift in any amount helps Manatee Reads! empower adults who want to learn or improve their ability to read, write, understand and speak English. All donations are tax-deductible and also are used to provide Tutor Training and Adult Literacy Programs, as well as operations.

Your membership and your commitment to support literacy helps empower adults through literacy. Your help helps adult learners gain the skills they need to achieve their full potential as individuals, parents, workers and community members. By helping us teach them to read and write well enough to complete a job application, communicate with their children’s teachers or simply enjoy reading a newspaper—you give them the ability and self-confidence they need to get a better job and move out of poverty. You help them achieve their dream to provide a better life for themselves and their children.

To show your belief in and commitment to literacy, join the Literacy Council today. Simply complete and mail this form to 1701 14th Street West, Suite 5, Bradenton, Florida 34205. Please make checks payable to Manatee Reads!. If you have any questions, please call 941-746-8197.
