THE WASHINGTON POST ADVICE COLUMN ASK AMY RECOGNIZES PROLITERACY AMONG TOP CHARITIES
Posted on December 29, 2021

We are humbled to be in included in The Washington Post's advice column: Ask Amy. Columnist Amy Dickinson recognized ProLiteracy as a highly rated and worthy organization in her annual Charity Roundup.

Dickinson gives a nod of respect to Ruth Colvin for founding Literacy Volunteers of America in 1960—now ProLiteracy with more than 1,000 organizations across America and internationally. Ruth's work is evidence that one person can truly make a difference in the world.

Dickinson points out the importance of giving this year if you can, and her list includes other change-making organizations in a variety of categories that have proven reputations for service, including the likes of Meals on Wheels, World Central Kitchen, Habitat for Humanity, and others. Don’t forget to always research an organization before donating. (Read more about our Charity Navigator 4-Star Rating)

Every important social issue is impacted by low literacy. Through literacy individuals gain the skills and power necessary to lift themselves out of poverty, and ultimately inspire change for themselves and their communities for generations to come.
