The Bi-State Literacy Council’s annual trivia night is the major fundraiser for the Council, with all proceeds being used to support literacy programs and services in the six counties we serve. Primarily, proceeds from this event will be used to provide semi-annual grants to area literacy providers, awards to literacy volunteers, and to provide professional development grants to literacy professionals.
The Council is also working to build the balance of our foundation account at the Quad Cities Community Foundation, that will allow us to provide more support to worthwhile literacy providers in our community.
In 2018 the Council received 18 grant requests from worthy literacy provider organizations and could only fund 11 of them due to funding availability. Our goal is to provide as much support as we can to area providers, as well as scholarships to individuals in support of their educational goals.
Your continued support of our fundraisers will enable the Council to provide greater support to organizations and individuals.
