Thank you to the Otto Bremer Foundation

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!

From left to right are Lois Schmidt, Nonprofit and Community Resources at Bremer Bank; John Fitzgerald, Executive Director, Western Community Action; Dr. David Patterson, Treasurer, and Candace Thomas, Chair, Literacy Volunteers of Southwest Minnesota; and Bernice Robinson, Fiscal Director, Western Community Action.
