Genie Dee Fund for Literacy

Genie was driven, focused, committed, and a shining light who was unable to be deterred or distracted by the ravages of ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease.

Genie joined the Volunteer Center family as the Literacy Program Director in November 2011. During her tenure, her selfless dedication and enthusiasm galvanized our volunteers to make progress that rippled out in waves of good through our community. She led the Literacy program with compelling modesty and an unwavering passion for results.

We are deeply sad to share of her passing on August 18, 2017. Finding meaning in this loss feels impossible.  Our focus is on Genie's inspiring life of service.  With the help of dedicated volunteers and supporters, Genie showed us that an individual has the power to do great things and that the impact of our actions can reach far beyond one life.

We thank you for thinking of Genie through your donation. Your gift will allow us to continue the work Genie was so devoted to- Empowering adults through literacy.
