We just celebrated a day for giving thanks. When counting your blessings did you remember to count your education among them?

Literacy is such a basic ability for many of us that we forget for many in this world it is a privilege. There are roughly 774 million people in the world who don’t have this ability. That’s a meaningful percentage of the human population.


“Literacy is the bridge that closes the gap between discouragement and confidence, between confusion and understanding, and between sadness and hope. It’s the greatest platform of personal growth, and the means by which every human being can realize their full potential.”

-Marc and Angel Chernoff

Your gift will help empower the children and families of Grace Place to earn their education and change the path of their futures.

Make a gift

What a beautiful gift to give this holiday season. 


Give a gift of appreciated investments!
Many charitably minded taxpayers have discovered that they can reduce or even eliminate capital gain tax by using their appreciated investments (such as stocks) to fund their charitable objectives.  A well-planned gift of stock may let you generate an income-tax charitable deduction based on the full fair-market value of the stock while allowing you to forgo tax on your paper gain.  Instructions you can provide to your broker can be received by phone, email or fax by contacting Barbara Evans at 239.234.2403 or barbara@graceplacenaples.org.
