Building an Organization that Outlives It’s Founder/ Mr. Tom Stader

Tom Stader is the Founder and Executive Director of The Library Project, an organization that donates libraries to under financed schools, community centers, and orphanages in Asia. He believes that education is the key motivator to breaking the cycle of poverty that exists in the developing world. Tom’s message that anyone can take a simple idea and grow it into something that can change the world makes him a unique and inspiring speaker.
In 2006 at the age of 32, Tom had a simple idea to donate libraries to two orphanages in Dalian, China. Soon after those libraries were complete, Tom founded The Library Project. Since then, Tom and his dedicated team have completed 1635 library donations throughout China and Vietnam and over 800,000 eager young readers now have access to over 1,000,000 local language children’s books.
Establishing a non-profit organization in the developing world wasn’t easy, Tom ran into countless challenges and took many risks over the years—some that worked and others that didn’t. But with hard work and determination, Tom was able to overcome the challenges and created an organization that has a razor sharp focus on program specific results. Tom pledges to make every donated dollar count and prides himself on financial efficiency, donor accountability, and operational transparency.
Tom has spoken throughout China, Hong Kong, and Vietnam. He has been a three time speaker at the Rotary Club of Beijing, two time speaker at the Rotary Club of Shanghai, and two time TEDx speaker (Guangzhou and Nanjing) as well as speaking at the Shanghai Chamber of Commerce, Xi’an International Business Forum, Shanghai World Expo, and countless corporate and organization events.
He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Northern Arizona University.
