Support ILI’s Free English Program for Immigrants and Refugees
The Giving Voice Campaign is an on-going effort to close the gap between program costs and state-granted funds for English for Community Refugees and Immigrants. We are grateful for community sponsors and donors who supported our recent Giving Voice Fundraiser at the Hotel Northampton.

Why Support Giving Voice?
- Since 1988 ILI has been providing free English classes for immigrants and refugees from Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties.
- These free English classes help change lives. Our students gain the skills necessary to access better education and employment through classes that focus on conversation, academic skills and citizenship.
- Students are community members whose careers include work in the service industry, factories, hospitals, the computer industry and personally-owned businesses.
- As students’ English skills improve, so do their opportunities.
This is an on-going effort to close the gap between program costs and state-granted funds for English for Community Refugees and Immigrants.
