What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

The Preservation Foundation, Inc.

Our current program consists of operating a Web site where we encourage unpublished writers by direct advice, by publishing their stories as E-books and paperbacks, and by sponsoring writing contests. We publish some fiction but our primary focus is on nonfiction. We have published numerous full- length traditional books and E-books to date and we plan to publish more. New technologies are making this much more affordable. We encourage potential donors to go to our site to get an idea of the scope of our work.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We encourage writers to share their stories on our web site, and/or as paperbacks and E Books. Our name, The Preservation Foundation, states our ultimate goal--to keep those stories alive for the children, grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren of the authors.

In the often confusing world of internet publishing we offer previously unpublished writers a safe and free venue for sharing their stories with the world and for preserving it for future generations.

We have maintained our www.storyhouse.org web site since early in the 1998. We now have over 1,500 stories, most biographical. Fairly recently we began to publish paperbacks and E Books. We have over 30 currently available for purchase. Last year we began our Storyhouse Weekly Reader, a weekly E-Mail with an excerpt of one of our stories and a link to the full story. This has been widely praised and readership is expanding daily.

We are a one man operation, although I have help from others. I do the programming and maintaining of all aspects of our program. I'm healthy and am grooming my replacement to take over when necessary so that our goal of preserving these stories will continue when I am gone.

From no stories in 1976 when we were founded, we have now over 1,500 on our web site. We are now publishing paperbacks and E Books. We now have a popular E Mail mailing. We simply plan to expand these programs.
