Join our Vision Society

Create educational opportunity, a path for brighter futures, your personal legacy.

Learning Ally relies on the generosity of our donors to fund our critical and transformational services that help students who struggle to read the printed word. Much of our philanthropic support comes through outright contributions, but sometimes these gifts do not reflect all that a donor might want to do to help. Our Vision Society was established to recognize and thank those individuals who have chosen to support Learning Ally – at any level – through their will or in any other forms of estate planning. Founded in 1948 Learning Ally (formerly Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic) has steadfastly maintained a deep commitment to this often misunderstood and neglected population of students, helping them to develop a love of learning and achieve academic success. 

Legacy gifts to Learning Ally ensure that support to impact the lives of these students will continue and exist for generations to come. At the same time, legacy donors may be able to create tax advantages for themselves and their family.  We encourage donors to consult with their financial advisor for details on making a bequest, charitable trust or designating Learning Ally as a charitable beneficiary of your assets. The Vision Society was established to recognize those who have included the Learning Ally in estate plans.
