Literacy Volunteers of Somerset County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and relies strictly on grants and contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, other organizations, and fundraising events. We do not receive any government funding.
Each year LVSC must raise funds to support every area of activity undertaken by the organization including tutor recruitment, training and supplies, student outreach, student assessments, tutoring services and administration, student recognition, program development and new literacy initiatives that make LVSC's programs not only exceptional, but free to our students. Please consider a generous donation to LVSC so we can continue our important mission and help more adult students achieve their literacy and personal goals.
