Everyday Ways to Support Literacy



Theresa, right, is a volunteer who donates her time to the Decoda Literacy Library. 

Did you know there are other ways to help fund literacy programs in BC without writing a cheque? Gail Hanney, Director, Fund Development, shares some simple ways that you can make a big difference for your favourite cause.


Cangive.ca is an innovative way to support your favourite causes through everyday online shopping.

Every time you shop online for books, clothing, or other merchandise through the Cangive.ca shopping mall, up to 15% of each purchase will automatically benefit literacy programs in BC at no extra cost to you.

Now that we no longer use pennies in circulation, your bills are usually rounded up. But what about your card purchases?

Your spare change can create change for thousands of people in BC seeking to improve their literacy skills!  ChangeIt® lets you automatically round up your debit, credit, or mobile wallet purchases and donate the change to Decoda Literacy Foundation.

Your miles go extra far when you donate them to Decoda Literacy Foundation.  As a charity partner in the Aeroplan Beyond Miles Program, Decoda can redeem miles for merchandise such as books for our literacy library or fundraising incentives like our Literacy is Life Team Trivia Challenge. By raising hundreds of dollars in funds for literacy, teams are eligible to compete for exciting prizes at trivia events happening throughout the province in September/October.
