The Stafford Foundation (TSF) was founded in 2002 by Earl W. Stafford. The Foundation became famous worldwide for its People’s Inaugural Project.
In March 2008, Mr. Stafford conceived the idea of an unprecedented event to bring disadvantaged people from all walks of life to Washington, D.C. to be part of the 2009 presidential inaugural celebration.
Through the People’s Inaugural Project, TSF welcomed several hundred disadvantaged people as guests for a three-day gathering that included four events — the People’s Inaugural Ball, a Youth Ball, a prayer breakfast and a luncheon. Nearly 40 nonprofit organizations that assist some of society’s neediest people participated in the project.
Today, TSF continues to partner with many of these organizations and maintain a strong commitment to doing good for those in need.
