This is an oustanding organization that provides education to those young students who are having difficulty with their reading and language skills. Their success rate has been outstanding.

The funds that are raised are not diluted by large executive salaries or overhead but are directed to the teaching and mentoring of the students.

We have been donors to the Center for the past eight years. Our granddaughter was tested and received services from the center. We are impressed with the educational research they are doing and with the caring, empathetic way they deal with clients. We are impressed with their outreach in our state encouraging the importance of reading in early childhood and the value of attending college or other post-secondary education. Idaho is a rural state and these initiatives are critically important.

Community Impact: That's the hallmark of LPLC. Thru their programming, they are enriching the lives of young people, and broadening the professional skills of Schoolteachers. They create opportunity wherever they serve. Idaho just wouldn't be the same without LPLC. As a donor, we are happy to continue to support them, as the Leadership continues to work with a very high ethical standard. Communication, Transparency, repect for donor base, financial integrity, committment to community. These are all hallmarks of the LPLC organization, from top to bottom.

The Lee Pesky Learning Center has made a difference in the Sun Valley Idaho area where I have a home. They are addressing the changing demographics and have a realistic approach to helping the growing community. The Board of the Center is focused and dedicated to first class operations of Center and know how to reach out to the people they help. As a donor, I enjoy their creative fundraising campaigns, newsletters and events.

As a resident of area, I see the need for the Lee Pesky Learning Center.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Suggest to them that they take their 'model' and share it with other communities.
