We would not be able to accomplish our mission in local schools and the Chattanooga community without the support of our gracious donors. Donations allow us to offer incredible opportunities to students of all ages in Hamilton County through our outreach. Support the literary arts in Chattanooga and become a benefactor today!

Sponsorship Opportunities

If you or your company allocates funds for corporate sponsorship, we hope you will consider the Southern Lit Alliance. Our programs foster reading and writing skills of thousands of local students annually. In a world continually evolving toward abbreviated communication, these skills are imperative for young people to develop as they grow. We are also continuing to develop sophisticated, innovative programs for adults in Chattanooga. Contact us today about the latest sponsorship opportunities.
