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.

Whether it's $5 or $10, $50 or $100, every monthly gift makes a difference for a student working hard at their second chance. Take a stand for literacy for all and become a member of The Literacy League!


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 Merrill Lynch Global 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) 275-4034, or click here to email our Director of Philanthropy to learn more about how your gift can begin making a difference for Indy Reads' students today!
