Projects and Partners  

Oakville Community Foundation

The Henderson Family Trust and

The Alexander and Bernice De Maio Fund

In December of 2013 we received two cheques for $1000.00 each from The Henderson Family Trust and The Alexander and Bernice De Maio Fund (funds held within the Oakville Community Foundation). In May 2014, we received an additional $1,000 from The Alexander and Bernice De Maio Fund.

These grants will help us provide up-to-date and targeted adult literacy resources (including books, workbooks, learning guides and software), packaged into specific and standardized learning plans that volunteer tutors and their students can follow easily. The final outcomes of this project include: enhanced individual student programs, improved student commitment, longer volunteer engagement, shorter student programs, increased student capacity and several years of project material use.


Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar

We gratefully acknowledge a donation of $3,000 from the Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar to help fund hiring a Student/Tuor Coordinator. This position is integral to the success of our students and volunteers.



Oakville Public Library
The Council has a longstanding relationship with the library. We are fortunate to have an office in the Woodside library, and receive many other kinds of support from all levels of staff. Woodside library is also home to a wonderful collection of adult literacy resources and readers.


Starbucks Coffee and Panago Pizza
It’s not just about the food and drink – we appreciate the support of our partners in Oakville. Both are happy to donate refreshments for our meetings, and Starbucks staff are always ready to help at our annual used book sale.
