Literacy Volunteers of Southwest Minnesota wants to thank the Otto Bremer Foundation for its grant of $47,ooo to support our efforts to recruit and train tutors to work with adult learners in Lyon and Redwood Counties. With these funds, LV*SW*MN will be able to hire a part-time Community Outreach Coordinator and support our literacy programs.
We also want to thank Western Community Action for serving as our fiscal sponsor. When LV*SW*MN applied for this grant, we were waiting for a determination letter regarding our tax exempt status as a non-profit from the IRS. We are happy to report we received that letter!
