It has been a very exciting and busy year at the PEI Literacy Alliance. Last summer was their 16th year running their free tutoring program that has helped more than 11,500 children. Then, in October 2017, they were nearly forced to close their doors. With the Province’s generous support and two-year commitment, they are still here. However, they still need to raise more funds to be able to continue offering their free programs. Over Christmas, they launched their first Give the Gift of Literacy Campaign and raised more than $36,000.
Today they launched their new look and website. Recently, the Alliance received a donation to cover the cost of a new website design and Revolution Media offered them a non-profit rate. The Board and Staff took this opportunity to also create a new look for the Alliance with a new logo and slogan. Executive Director Jinny Greaves says “We’re very excited about our new look. Our logo shows the power of literacy and goes very well with our new slogan – Literacy Opens Doors. Our new website is mobile-friendly, in plain language, uses clear design, and is easy to navigate.”
The Staff, Board and Volunteers of the Alliance are passionate about literacy in PEI and continue to work hard to keep the services of this organization going. This new website is part of that work. They timed the launch of their new website to come a few months before their biggest annual fundraising.
