About Our Auction

This year has already seen many personal, professional, educational, and cultural challenges that have affected every member of our Tarrant County community. One undeniable truth, and one that has been brought to the fore, is that education is critical to family stability. Through our past communications, you know about Tarrant Literacy Coalition’s work in our growing community. Every year we raise money to support adults who are working hard to improve their English language skills, study for the High School Equivalency test, learn to read and write at a higher level, prepare for the US Citizenship Exam or studying to earn a certificate in a skilled, high demand career field.

This year, for the public’s safety and to comply with social distancing recommendations and limited gatherings, we have decided to hold an online raffle and auction, with proceeds going to empower adult learners and those who teach them with resources, tools and classes that can help them navigate the changing digital environment.

***New to this event*** We'll be hosting daily giveaways on our Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/TarrantLiteracy/live/). To be entered into the giveaway, all you have to do is make a bid or donation in the 24 hours leading up to that day's giveaway! Our first giveaway will be at Noon on Saturday, 8/22, and will take place at Noon each day until the auction closes on the 28th. You don't need to be present to win, but we sure hope you can join us live!


About Tarrant Literacy Coalition

The Tarrant Literacy Coalition (www.tarrantlit.org) empowers adult learners and those who teach them with high quality literacy services and resources so businesses can hire, people can work, and families can thrive. Through a combined effort of direct service classes, teacher, tutor and volunteer training and networking, donation of books and technology, and advocacy and outreach, TLC works to ensure that every adult learner of our north Texas community has access to education which improves the quality of life for themselves and their families. As B.B. King once said, "The beautiful thing about learning is no one can take it away from you."
