Our 2013 Raise a Reader Campaign is Underway - this is the best time of the year to donate to Project Literacy!
Raise a Reader, Project Literacy’s most important fundraiser of the year, peaks but does not end on Wednesday, Sept. 25th when volunteers hit the streets to hawk special editions of The Daily Courier newspaper in exchange for donations.
This is a great time to donate because the BC Government has committed funds to the province-wide Raise a Reader campaign, which will be distributed among participating communities in proportion to the amount each raises locally.
Your donation does not have to be received by the 25th to be included in the Provincial Raise a Reader Pool. In fact, any Raise a Reader donations we receive between now and the end of October will count towards our share of the provincial pool.
Please make cheques out to The Kelowna Daily Courier - Raise a Reader. Don’t worry it all comes back to us!

Introducing our new literacy initiative for trades: LIFT!
Are you between 18 and 30 years of age and pursuing a career in trades, technology, health care, or social development?
Could you use the free-of-charge support of a skilled tutor to help you with English, math or some other subject you need to succeed in your studies?
If you answered yes to these questions, then the LIFTprogram is designed with you in mind. Our tutors can help you prepare for school entrance exams, apprenticeship exams, certificate courses or other school or job-related requirements.
