Give a Gift
Your gift to Wisconsin Literacy helps us provide health literacy program development, resources, and training to literacy agencies throughout Wisconsin. Many of the adult learners who are studying reading, writing and English at our member agencies also have low health literacy skills. Your gift will help increase the health literacy of the residents of Wisconsin.
There are several ways to give to Wisconsin Literacy:
Become a Sponsor
Wisconsin is becoming a national leader in health literacy. As a result, Wisconsin Literacy, Inc. has a presence both statewide and nationally in the field of health literacy.
