Leaders in Literacy Society
This leadership team is made up of donors who have contributed a minimum of $1,000 in a given year. They are Board members, Advisory Council members and other dedicated members of the SBLC family committed to improving the lives of people throughout Baltimore through literacy classes and related programs and activities. Leaders in Literacy are recognized with a plaque in our entrance and throughout the year in SBLC’s publications and at events. In addition, Leaders are kept up-to-date on all major news via email from the Executive Director and receive invitations to special programs and events.
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.
