Donating to the Jack & Denny Smith Memorial Fund for Literacy

Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

Our Alliance with the California Community Foundation


In order to reduce management costs and pass the maximum benefit on to the cause of literacy, we have entrusted all fund assets to the long established and highly respected California Community Foundation (CCF).  This alliance with the CCF allows for the economical and professional management and investment of the fund's assets while leaving complete discretion to the directors of the J&DSMFL as to how the funds are to be used to fight illiteracy.

If you would like to make a secure donation with your credit card, please click below to be re-directed to the JDSMFL donation site on the CCF web site.
