Literacy For All launched in November 2016 as a donor-advised initiative of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta. Literacy For all is also a campaign and movement - we are creating new alliances, awareness and advocacy opportunities to break the multigenerational cycle of low literacy in Georgia. In January 2017, Literacy For All engaged Deloitte to conduct a pro bono study on the state of literacy in Georgia. Click here to download the findings.
