Funding Available for Literacy Projects

The Pembina Escarpment Reading Council (PERC) is supporting a new initiative to promote literacy in surrounding communities.  This year we will be offering up to $500 to support successful designated proposals.

This initiative is in keeping with PERC’s literacy goals:
1.      To improve the quality of literacy instruction at all levels
2.      To develop an awareness and understanding of the impact of literacy
3.      To promote development of literacy proficiency for all people
The proposal may be for a school based or community idea including but not limited to summer reading programs, Little Free Libraries, Makerspace initiatives or other activities that promote reading, writing, listening and learning in our schools and communities.

Everyone is welcome to apply: teachers, students, community members/groups,
parents - EVERYONE who lives within our Pembina Escarpment Reading Council area!

If your project is approved, we would wish to use photos of your completed project and any other information you would like to share with us.

Return your application by one of the two dates this year- January 15, 2018 or May 15, 2018 to: 

If you would like more information, please contact Darlene Keith in Morden at Minnewasta or Maple Leaf School or any member of the PERC executive. Proposal applications are available. Email
