Ways to Support StoryCorps

If you’re here, you already know the power of listening to and sharing stories from our lives. In just a few moments, we can realize someone who we thought was nothing like us experiences the same things we all do: wonder, fear, tenacity, and hope. Your support makes it possible for StoryCorps, an independently funded nonprofit, to collect interviews with people of all backgrounds and to share those stories with broad audiences so that we all can understand that everyone is human, and everyone is worthy of being heard.

Just as there’s no one way to tell a story, there’s no one way to give. Here are twelve ways that you can support and help StoryCorps record, preserve, and share the stories of everyday people.
