Donations are extremely important for subsidizing purchases of English language workbooks, ESL newspapers, and other reading material for those of our over 800 students who can’t afford them. Although we have no paid staff and all our tutors are volunteers, we do have some administrative costs such as insurance and professional tutor training. Students pay no registration or tuition fees.

Amazon Purchases

An easy way to support Laubach is through your Amazon purchases!  It’s easy and costs you nothing.  We are a part of the AmazonSmile program.

How to order from Amazon Smile and donate to Laubach at the same time 
1. To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. 
2. On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select a charitable organization  (Laubach Literacy Council of San Diego County) to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at will result in a donation.
3. You use the same account on and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.

Company Matching Donation Programs 

Please don’t forget to check with your company for their matching donation program.  Many local businesses will match the donation you make.  Check with your HR Department or on the website for your place of employment to see if they offer this benefit/service.  Every contribution matters and we would be grateful for each and every one!
