Make a Donation
We want to thank everyone who donated to Manatee Literacy Council during the 24-hour Giving Challenge held on April 28-29. Since this was only a 24-hour event, and many of you may have missed it or did not donate during that period, you now have another opportunity to double any donation you make to us.

The Louis & Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust in Sarasota is matching all donations up to $500! This means you can donate as little as $5.00 or $10.00, all the way up to $500, and these donations will be doubled. This is a great way to make your contribution go further and help fund our literacy programs.

But do it soon! Funds are limited and when they run out, they’re gone. Other non-profits in the area are also vying for these funds, so make your donation count…soon. We thank you in advance for any generosity you can provide.
