Introducing the E.B. "Ben" Allen Literacy and Education Fund

We are thrilled to announce the creation of the E.B. "Ben" Allen Literacy and Education Fund, an initiative that aims to honor the legacy of E.B. "Ben" Allen and carry forward his unwavering com

mitment to promoting literacy and education. We firmly believe that education is the cornerstone of a brighter future, and with this fund, we will dedicate our efforts to support three core initiatives that align with E.B.'s lifelong passion for reading and his belief in the transformative power of education.

  1. Supporting Educators: We recognize the invaluable role that educators play in shaping young minds and inspiring a love for learning. The E.B. "Ben" Allen Literacy and Education Fund will provide support and resources to educators, ensuring they have the necessary tools and materials to create engaging and effective learning environments. From micro-grants for classroom projects to collaboration with supporting organizations, we are committed to empowering educators to make a lasting impact on their students' educational journeys.

  2. Supporting Students: We understand the financial challenges that students often face when pursuing their educational dreams. The E.B. "Ben" Allen Literacy and Education Fund is committed to easing these burdens. First, we will provide micro-grants to high school students struggling with academic testing and college application fees. In addition to micro-grants, we will award an annual scholarship to students whose career goals align with our mission of promoting education and literacy locally and abroad. By investing in these future change-makers, we aim to amplify our collective efforts in fostering education and literacy around the corner and around the world.

  3. Supporting Global Literacy: We believe literacy is a fundamental right and a tool for empowerment. The E.B. "Ben" Allen Literacy and Education Fund will collaborate with reputable charities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) dedicated to promoting literacy worldwide. Through strategic partnerships, we will work towards enhancing access to quality education and improving literacy rates in underserved communities. Our goal is to provide individuals with the tools and opportunities to develop their reading and writing skills regardless of background or location.

The E.B. "Ben" Allen Literacy and Education Fund will operate through a sustainable model of funding, combining the proceeds from book sales in our catalog with the philanthropic support of the founder, advisors, and authors who are part of the Folded Page Publications family.

Every purchase from an author in our catalog contributes directly to advancing our mission. By choosing to read and support our books, readers become our partners in that mission. The philanthropic support of the founder, advisors, and authors associated with Folded Page Publications plays a crucial role in ensuring the fund's ongoing impact. A strong commitment to this shared vision enables us to reach more students, educators, and communities, amplifying the fund's reach and influence.

Through this combined effort, the E.B. "Ben" Allen Literacy and Education Fund harnesses the power of our reading community and embraces a collective responsibility toward education and literacy. We believe we can create lasting change and uplift individuals around the world through the transformative power of education.
