Empower Canadians through literacy and learning.
Literacy is a fundamental skill that all people need for employment, safety, health, confidence, and community connection.
In Canada, 17% of adults between 16 to 65 years of age struggle with low levels of literacy.1 For these Canadians, improving literacy does not simply mean enhancing basic reading skills, it is a way to fully participate in the world and boost economic prosperity.
You can help build strong communities by building essential skills, instilling a love of reading and writing in children, and helping adult learners improve their lives. Your donation to the Literacy for All Fund will help enhance and develop literacy skills for Canadians across the country.

What makes up the Literacy for All Fund?
The Literacy for All Fund by CanadaHelps includes over 270 registered charities who are improving literacy rates across Canada.
The charities in this Fund are selected through an algorithmic approach, taking the charity’s area of focus, mission, and description into account. This Fund includes libraries, literacy programs supporting adults, children, and newcomers, and writing programs to improve reading and writing skills.
To ensure donations reach charities easily and efficiently, charities must be one of the more than 20,000 charities registered to receive funds electronically from CanadaHelps. Funds will be transferred quarterly, subject to a minimum of $10 per charity. We regularly update the list of charities in this Fund.
