Join The Literacy League: Indy Reads' monthly giving program! A regular monthly contribution with your credit card, or by electronic funds transfer (EFT) from your bank account, helps ensure consistent resources for our students.

Your monthly gift—no matter the amount—helps us ensure we will always have the resources to bring another student into the classroom, to enrich another student's life, to help a student reach their full potential. 

Our Literacy League members can pick one used book each month in appreciation of their continuing support for Indy Reads. Additionally, members are honored with a nameplate on the Literacy League Board located in our community bookstore. Once a month, members may come to Indy Reads in Fountain Square, move a key under their name, and select a free used book, all while unlocking a brighter future for our students.  

Happy reading! 


Transferring stock or other appreciated financial assets are a great way to support literacy programs and efforts to end illiteracy in Central Indiana while reducing potential tax burdens. You may also avoid brokerage fees by transferring stock/investments instead of selling them!

Our investment account is held by Old National Wealth Management, and simple transfer instructions can be provided to you or to your financial advisor, and most transfers can be completed in one business day.

Please call (317) 384-1496 to learn more about how your gift can begin making a difference for Indy Reads' students today!
