Kemp Klein Supported Oakland Literacy Council's Annual Ex Libris Event
Kemp Klein recently sponsored Oakland Literacy Council’s Annual Ex Libris Event. This fundraising event benefits adult literacy by funding new tutors, providing curriculum and technology for learners. Kemp Klein believes that literacy is vital, and in alignment with that belief, the Kemp Klein Foundation has supported Oakland Literacy Council for 29 years.
For over 37 years, the Oakland Literacy Council has enabled adult students to achieve individual literacy goals through a partnership with trained volunteer tutors. They serve native-English speaking adults who need basic reading, writing, and math skills, and foreign-born adults who need English reading, writing, or conversation skills.
