Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve reentry opportunities. Your generous donation will fund our mission to assist imprisoned authors and artists.
Welcome to the website of the Prisons Foundation and its sister nonprofit organization, Safe Streets Arts Foundation. Our mission is to assist with the productivity and self-esteem of prisoners, 95% of whom will return to society as your future neighbors.
The Prisons Foundation helps prisoners publish their books on Amazon.com. It provides free information and advice to publish on Amazon, as well as paid services for editing, typing, designing covers, and uploading manuscripts.
Its sister nonprofit Safe Streets Arts Foundation produces art and stage shows at the John F, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as part of the annual Kennedy Center’s Page-to-Stage Festival, as well as other venues including colleges and universities.
Our nonprofit organization also owns a large track of land which we have developed as the Prisons Foundation Covid-19 Memorial Grove. PF Covid-19 Memorial Grove is a one-acre expanse of land in Linden, Virginia, one hour from Washington, DC, that commemorates victims of Covid-19 in prison.
