Give the gift of literacy to a family!

Donate any amount online with paypal:

Imagine if you could not not read a simple sentence, help your child with homework, or even send a text message. This is a reality for the  1 in 6 adults in Hawai`i who cannot read or write at a functional level , and their keiki are at greater risk of never learning to read or not finishing school. But you can help change this… Today, you can give the gift of literacy.

Every donation directly benefits our Family Literacy Libraries, Bookmobile, Adult Tutoring, Parents Achieving Literacy, and Drop-In Center. Your contribution supports proven literacy programs that help nearly 3,000 adults and keiki improve their reading, writing, and life skills and so much more! With over 300 terrific volunteers involved in this work, we are also one of the most cost-effective ways to truly help a family in need.


Greater literacy is not a hand-out, but a gift that helps keiki and adults reach their dreams and build a better future. Your donation is fully tax-deductible, and we appreciate your support! Mahalo for joining this effort to end illiteracy today.

This celebration is a chance for all of us to thank those involved with our very own Bookmobile, and is definitely a chance to get involved!

We are pleased to share that our annual READ & WRITE Campaign successfully met our goals for funding the Family Literacy Library and our programs!

Family Library Holiday Reading

Mahalo nui to all for your generosity! Without your help, Hawaii Literacy would never be able to help over 2,700 people in need learn to read and write each year! With in-kind donations and over 400 volunteers, we really stretch each dollar. We are able to provide free literacy tutoring to an adult for $350 for an entire year, or bring the Bookmobile to dozens of keiki in public housing for about $95 a visit. Each gift makes a true impact.

A special thank you to our Board of Directors for kicking off the annual appeal with 100% participation, and to the following list of donors:

Delta Construction Group
G. Todd Withy Law Offices
Hawaiian Electric Company
Hawaii Self Storage
Pettus Foundation
Simon Leadership Group

Thank you for helping those in need!
