Chatham Literacy helps adults, living or working in Chatham County, acquire the literacy and educational skills they need to function successfully in society. Chatham Literacy’s operations are entirely dependent on grants, donations, public events and related business sponsorships. Without partners like you, we cannot accomplish our mission.

Each year Chatham Literacy conducts four fundraising events:

  1. Spring for Literacy Luncheon with Clyde Edgerton (April 19)
  2. Play Scrabble for Literacy (June 16)
  3. Fall for Literacy Luncheon in Siler City (September)
  4. Literacy Swings in Pittsboro (October 15)

All proceeds from these events directly fund Chatham Literacy’s free one-on-one and small-group instruction. With your support, an increasing number of adults will be able to read to their children, talk with their healthcare providers, obtain employment, improve their job performance, and/or become U.S. citizens.

Literacy Luncheon fundraisers feature leading published authors who speak following a catered sit-down luncheon served at a local upscale venue. Typically 200 community leaders, donors, and volunteers attend these events. For a $100 donation, the public is invited to join in a delicious lunch and author presentation.

Play Scrabble for Literacy. More details to follow.

Literacy Swings fundraisers feature big band jazz orchestras for your dancing and listening pleasure. These events typically attract over 100 patrons. For a $20 donation, the public is invited to join in the fun and dance the night away to the fabulous sounds of a 20-piece orchestra. Food and drink are extra.

There are opportunities to sponsor these events.


Chatham Literacy is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible organization.
