Moore County Literacy Council

… is a 501(c)(3) organization, formed in 1987 by a few committed individuals. The founders recognized the crippling effect of illiteracy and low literacy on individuals, families and communities, and how teaching reading and writing can open the universe for those who desire to grow and prosper.

Almost 80% of our funding comes from right here in Moore County, including grants from United Way and Moore County, both of which are funded by local citizens, and from our annual major fundraiser. In 2016 this was the Reading Rocks Campaign, June 1st-August 25th. Many remember the Annual Spelling Bee for Literacy in past years. Our solid, generous base of supporters – individuals, service organizations, churches, businesses, local foundations – helps us achieve our vision, which is to reverse the debilitating consequences of adult low literacy and illiteracy by offering free tutoring services to adults.
