Happy Holidays

Give the gift of literacy to Chattanooga.

The mission of the Mary Walker Historical and Educational Foundation is to help alleviate poverty for all Chattanooga citizens and help create economic stability through literacy training and educational activities.

Reading is a present that has neverending rewards.

With support from donors like you, our student learners enjoyed seasonal camps, journalism projects, fine arts, and literacy acceleration programs to help them make the critical shift needed to learn to read. Your continued contribution can make all the difference in moving Chattanoogans forward toward success. It’s the gift that will never stop giving.

See our impact in action.
