We are totally volunteer and use all profits above expenses from our annual Gig Harbor Garden Tour for grants to support literacy programs. We have given over $30,000 a year for 20 years in grants. Most grants either support tutoring for struggling readers or provide books to students. We have awarded grants in recent years to the following programs:
