A gift in your will could help someone learn to read and do numeracy. It could change their life, and the lives of those around them.

Leaving a gift in your will - also known as a legacy gift - to Shannon Trust is a wonderful way to support people to learn to read and do numeracy, for generations to come.

How your gift makes a difference

Learning to read and do numeracy has a huge impact – not just on the person learning, but on everyone around them; whether that’s their mentor or coach, their family and friends, prison or service staff, or the wider community.

If someone struggles with literacy and numeracy, their children are more likely to do so too, and so on. Your gift could support people to learn to read and do numeracy, and break the cycle of low literacy and numeracy for generations to come.

Together, we can achieve a future where nobody is left out of learning.
