The Pay It Forward Foundation is a 501 c3 Non-Profit Organization, established in September of 2000, by Catherine Ryan Hyde, author of the 1999 novel, Pay It Forward. The next year brought the success of the motion picture Pay It Forward, which starred Mr. Kevin Spacey, Ms. Helen Hunt, the adorable Haley Joel Osment and Jon Bon Jovi.
