These words started it all…
Pay It Forward was one boy's idea...an idea that sparked a movement.
Established in September of 2000, the Pay It Forward Foundation was established by Catherine Ryan Hyde, author of the inspirational novel Pay It Forward, as a way to inspire a movement of people, all around the world, to show acts of kindness for others.
The Pay It Forward Foundation is a 501 c 3 charitable organization. Your financial gifts to support our work are tax deductible.
Our primary work is encouraging and inspiring acts of kindness, as well as providing copies of the Young Readers Edition of Pay It Forward for use in schools and other learning environments.
