Community Foundation Awards Grant to Literacy Coalition

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

The Literacy Coalition of Greater Haven is pleased to announce that it has received a grant for $3200 from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.  Many thanks to the Community Foundation for supporting the Coalition’s work to reach more communities and organizations throughout the region, including through the LiteracyEveryday website.  The Coalition – a lean organization that depends on volunteers and on the sharing of other partners in the Literacy Resource Center at 4 Science Park – applied only for one of the Foundation’s small grants, so as not to compete with direct providers of literacy services that may be seeking larger grants from the foundation.
