Donate Books & Supplies

We go through hundreds of sticky notes and index cards every month and are always seeming to run out of whiteboard markers. If you have some extra school supplies lying around, we promise we will love them well.

Sponsor a Student

Our mission is to build a self-sustaining business model where the highest quality instruction is offered at an accessible price point. While we continue to find our feet in this endeavor, your donation of any amount can be applied to a student's tuition to make it possible for them to attend and/or help alleviate the financial burden long-term, frequent intervention can be for families of various income levels. Please email us at info@redwoodliteracy.com or give us a call at 312-813-5141 if you would like to donate.
