You can make a REAL difference by making a donation.

Make a donation of any amount

We know that for organizations like ours to succeed, we need more help. The cost to maintain our programs breaks down to $1,112.00 per child per year. While 60% of participating families do make family share contributions, many cannot and it is nowhere near the necessary amount especially with the complications and loss of income due to COVID-19. For this reason, we need REAL Literacy Champions who, like you, believe in the importance of literacy and in supporting all children on the North Shore, even if they may not live in your neighborhood or even your own town. Please consider becoming a REAL Literacy Sustainer by making a monthly donation or, if you are able, make a one time gift this season. Your gift will help sustain and expand our programs. It will be a gift of literacy, and for the children, this will be a gift for life.

The REAL (Reading and Educational Assistance for Learning) Program's mission is to improve literacy in Lynn, Massachusetts.

The REAL Program is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
