"My Voice Matters." We selected this theme for our 57th Annual Recognition Ceremony because we believe that learning English gives our learners a key to open up new opportunities and achieve their goals, to make their voices heard, and to help them reach their potential of being influencers, organizers, voters, change-seekers, and change-makers; and we believe that their voice matters. Through the spirit of our work that connects our learners, partners, volunteers, and donors, we also strive to create a more integrated and equitable community.

"My Voice Matters": LCNV Celebrates 2019 Recognition Ceremony with the Community
On June 20th, we celebrated our 57th Annual Recognition Ceremony. It was our privilege to recognize some of our outstanding partners, volunteers and students who bring LCNV's mission to life. We were honored to have Gaston Araoz, the Northeastern Regional Representative for U.S. Senator Tim Kaine as our keynote speaker and to witness three of our learners read their essays on "My Voice Matters" aloud. Congratulations to LCNV's 2019 Awardees!

Today's breakfast: Literacy!
LCNV's inaugural A Taste of Literacy breakfast on March 29th was an overwhelming success!  It was attended by over 150 people who enjoyed delicious food, heard the inspiring stories of our speakers, and helped support LCNV's programs for beginning-level English language learners throughout Northern Virginia. Thanks to their generosity, LCNV raised over $38,000 to provide excellent and accessible English classes for LCNV learners

A Message from an LCNV Supporter on Possible Tax Benefits
Over 70 ½ Years Old and Subject to RMDs? A QCD may help lower your AGI.

No, this isn't a pitch for a new drug to lower your cholesterol levels. What we are talking about here is a way to give to LCNV and reduce taxes under the new tax rules (which make it harder to itemize deductions).
