Literacy Inc. Matching Grant Challenge

Support LINC’s 60 in 60 Days Resilient Readers Campaign

“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers— shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader” -- Alberto Manguel

The trauma and adverse effects of COVID-19 will continue to interrupt the wellbeing and educational needs of children making LINC’s mission more critical than ever.

For every $1 you donate today, LINC receives $2.  

We need your help to uplift NYC’s most vulnerable children, and today your gift will be doubled thanks to a generous Matching Grant Challenge from The Lawrence Foundation. We must raise $60,000 in 60 days to qualify for an additional $60,000!

Prior to the pandemic, children living in poverty were already at a disadvantage. Today, the educational disparities and the digital divide grow larger, with remote learning a necessity.

LINC provides daily virtual programming and continues to help parents create a literacy-rich home for their children. Parents are equipped with a toolbox of resources, skills that give them competence, a home library to make daily reading a reality, and a newly gained confidence that empowers them to influence their kids’ future. Books are the centerpiece of LINC’s virtual learning experiences.

Raising Resilient Readers is Essential Right Now.

Books bring comfort. Expand imaginations. Raise expectations. Stories give kids the words to articulate their feelings. The imagination to dream a life of their own. The experiences to broaden their possibilities. Books are a link to bring the family together, strengthening bonds that will last a lifetime.

All gifts are 100% tax-deductible.

* Payment can also be made by ACH wire or stock. Contact Jeanine Nadler (, 212-620-5462 ext. 113) for wiring or stock instructions.
