November 1, 2013, is National Family Literacy Day® and to celebrate this important day of awareness and to kick-off National Family Literacy Month®, the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) is launching The Big Give for Families Learning – an exciting and unprecedented fundraising challenge to raise $25,000 for family learning programs and services. The #NCFLBigGive is designed to motivate individuals across the country to lift up vulnerable families in a BIG way, by raising money together to support literacy and learning in communities nationwide. Participants will compete for prizes that include roundtrip domestic flights, books signed by award-winning authors, the latest in smartphone technology, personalized gear from Louisville Slugger, and more!
A national 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, NCFL believes that learning is an infinite and ongoing exchange among parents, children, educators and communities. From a conversation around the dinner table to a day in the classroom, we believe the real world is both how and why we learn. NCFL leads a collective of people and programs unified by a single mission – Families Learning Together. We bring the right people to the table – educators, influencers, dreamers and doers – to create vessels for learning. NCFL is more than a clearinghouse; we are a conduit – a network connecting people who need help.
We have technology and program resources. From the cloud to the home, we help children and adults. Family is more than just a part of our name; it’s the core of all we do and all we are. Our work with families is made possible by contributions from people like you.
