Action Read is a place of change and growth.  Our services help learners prepare for upgrading, become more productive employees and more engaged citizens who give back to their communities.  Lives change dramatically when people are able to read a set of instructions, fill out application forms, write a budget or read stories to a child.

Action Read believes that literacy is a cornerstone of a healthy and vibrant community.  We are very grateful to the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and to the United Way of Guelph and Wellington for providing the funding framework by which Action Read is able to serve the community.  Our mission is further brought to life through the commitment of individual donors, foundations, and corporations.

Help people realize their full potential through literacy and community development by making a donation to Action Read.

Ways to Donate

Donation Gift:

Individuals, service clubs or foundations may contribute to any one of our adult or family literacy programs, either as a one time gift or ongoing donations.

Tribute Gift:

Honour someone you care for by making a donation on their behalf.  Great for birthdays, anniversaries, teachers – you name it! Action Read will send a card and message of thanks on your behalf.

Planned Gift:

A bequest is a wonderful legacy.  It can also reduce the tax paid by your estate, while helping Action Read to plan for long-term success.  Please contact Action Read for details.

Matching Gift:

Many companies will match charitable donations made by their employees.  Ask your Human Resources Dept if they have a matching gift program and double your impact!

Corporate Sponsor:

As a corporation, you can become a sponsor of one of our programs or special events, or make an in-kind donation of equipment, supplies or services. Please contact Action Read for a sponsorship package.

In-Kind Donations:

In order to ensure that our centre has a positive learning environment, Action Read accepts donations of supplies, technology and some furniture.  Action Read keeps an up-to-date list of items needed.  A donation of anything on the list will truly make a difference in the quality of services we provide.

Gift certificates or any in-kind donation with original receipts will be issued Charitable Tax Receipts at face value.

For other in-kind donations, charitable tax receipts are issued upon request at ‘fair market value’.

If you have any questions about making a donation to Action Read, please contact our Executive Director at 519-836-2759.  Thank you very much for your support!
