We are organized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation called the dePaul Reading and Learning Association, Inc., and are governed by a Board of Trustees. Our Board is a corporate board, with responsibilities for fiscal oversight, organizational governance, fundraising, and hiring the executive director.
We serve children and individuals with dyslexia through Pinnacle Learning Services, Pinnacle School, and Pinnacle Testing Center, and a variety of dyslexia outreach services and community partnerships.
Our primary operating support comes fees for services, fundraising, and grants. We also conduct special events and programs as part of our fundraising and public awareness efforts. Pinnacle School programs receive no general per-pupil state or federal funding, but is eligible under several of the federal Title grant and recent School Choice programs.
