Maximize the value of your gift to ESLC
East Side Learning Center has several timely challenge matches totaling $50,000 from the Otto Bremer Foundation and the Katherine B. Andersen Fund of The Saint Paul Foundation. Help us reach our goal to raise $50,000 and receive all of the matches by the end of 2017!
- Dollar for dollar, every gift from new donors are doubled.
- Dollar for dollar, contributions from lapsed donors who have not given for a year or more are matched.
- Dollar for dollar, the increased portion of contributions from those who donated last year are doubled.
United Way Changes Impacting ESLC
The Greater Twin Cities United Way recently cut all Literacy Tutoring funding, including a grant for East Side Learning Center amounting to over one-third of our budget. Your gift today ensures we can continue to provide high-quality tutoring for our most vulnerable children.
Tapping Into Your Company's Dollars
Many businesses support the contribution and volunteer efforts of their employees and retirees. Matching gift programs and grants to nonprofits where employees volunteer are extensions of corporate philanthropy.
Please help ESLC tap into these dollars by contacting your human resources department. Request a matching gift form from your employer. Then contact us at (651) 793-7331 or email email@example.com. We will do the rest! Read more about employee matching grants

Solid reading skills lay a foundation for future success
Research shows the importance of reading by 3rd grade. The National Research Council states that "a person who is not at least a modestly skilled reader by that time is unlikely to graduate from high school” (Snow, Burns & Griffin, 1998).
