ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
The AnnieRuth Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, launched in 2012. Our purpose is to serve as a catalyst of positive change in underserved communities. We do so by focusing on education, health initiatives and economic development. Our goal is to equip participants with knowledge and skills to assist with making healthy life choices; thus empowering them to become positive contributors to society. Our programs offer viable solutions to problems that negatively impact individuals, the family unit and the community as a whole; problems that if unaddressed will negatively impact future generations.
