Funding Requests


Our approach to giving is to maximize the effect of the funds that are being distributed to improve literacy in Southeast New Brunswick. In the spirit of Legs for Literacy’s history, our efforts are focused on a balance between both English and French programs/benefits for adults and children alike. A long-term approach, emphasizing quality over quantity is also important.
