Keep an eye on your inbox and social media platforms for updates about how you can participate!

You can initiate a grant recommendation from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF). Please use our legal name and tax ID: Literacy Minnesota, Tax ID: 23-7217182. Transferring funds from an IRA to the Literacy Minnesota is an effective way of creating a legacy of education and empowerment. If you are 70 ½ or older, you can distribute funds from your IRA directly to the literacy council, which reduces your taxable income. Download a sample letter for your IRA administrator.
