Legacy Builders

In honor of SBLC’s 30th Anniversary, The Legacy Builders giving level was started to celebrate those donors who give over $3,000 in a single giving year. The work of our organization relies heavily on annual giving. Legacy Builder donors will receive all the benefits of the Leaders in Literacy Society, plus they will serve as ambassadors for our organization.
