The Book Foundation program was launched in 2014 by former Hollywood producer and social entrepreneur, Ruth Stalford. To create a more equitable society, the idea was simple; get new books into the hands of children in underserved areas
The work of the Book Foundation program is simple, direct, and immediate. Ruth's passion was contagious, and like-minded organizations quickly wanted to partner with The Book Foundation. One of Ruth's pet peeves in the non-profit world has always been duplication of effort. So her goal early on became to partner with organizations who were best of breed, and where The Book Foundation could provide incremental impact and thus enhance each other’s programs.
