Project READ relies on community support and donations in order to provide free tutoring services to students. All gifts are greatly appreciated.

If you would like to discuss the impact your donation can have on our program, please contact Program Coordinator Julie Pangrac at (217) 423-7323 or jpangrac@richland.edu.
