At the Cape Fear Literacy Council, our mission is to provide personalized education so adults can transform their lives.

CFLC, with the generosity of donors like you, has helped:

  • thousands of adults in Wilmington and beyond have FREE access to education since we opened in 1985.
  • hundreds of adults enroll in workforce development and job training programs.
  • generations of immigrant families prepare for – and earn – U.S. Citizenship.


We offer 1-on-1 tutoring and small classes for Math, Reading, Writing, English as a Second Language, Computer Skills/Digital Literacy, Test Preparation, and U.S. Citizenship. Our programs reach hundreds of adults each year and truly change lives, like the ones of the CFLC students in this video.

Help Us Reach Our $200,000 Goal by 6/30/2022!

100% of all donations will go directly to changing the lives of adults in our community. Give now and help us expand our programs for our NEW program year, starting July 1, 2022!

You can play a vital role with every gift!

Your support helps us fulfill our mission and keeps our programs FREE -- allowing adults in our community to achieve their goals by gaining the language and literacy skills they need to thrive!

Say YES to a better Wilmington! Here's how:

  • Make a Donation
  • Support and Share our Campaign
  • Create your own #CampaignForLiteracy to share with family and friends!

With your support, we can expand our programs so more adults and families in the Cape Fear region have the literacy and language skills they need. Together, we can make a difference for adults in the Cape Fear Region and beyond!
