  5. The Book Foundation
5429 W. Washington Blvd., Los Angeles, California, United States 90016

The Book Foundation program was launched in 2014. The idea was simple; get new books into the hands of children in underserved areas. The research was clear, children growing up in homes with no books are “on average” three years behind children in homes with lots of books. And in low-income areas the ratio of books to children is 1 to 300. Literacy is the key to opening doors and creating opportunity.
