Your generosity makes it possible for us to honor the voices of everyday people from across America–allowing us all to experience lives that may be very different from our own. These stories remind us that all of our stories matter, and illuminate our shared humanity. Authentic human connections, like the ones we create through StoryCorps, are particularly important at moments like this, when the fabric of our society is fraying. 

For the past two decades, StoryCorps’ mission has revolved around life-changing conversations, whispering truths about the richness and complexity of lived experiences into our ears so we can better understand and appreciate one another. 

Thank you for being part of our mission: to help us believe in each other and illuminate the humanity and possibility in us all, one story at a time. 

If you believe in the power of listening to unite us, please make a tax-deductible donation today. All gifts made through December 31, 2023 will be matched 1:1–doubling your impact!

More than 85% of our audience of tens of millions say that our stories help them understand the experiences of people different from them and decrease fear of “the other.”

And 82% of StoryCorps listeners report that our stories make them feel more positive about humanity.
