Ways to Support StoryCorps

If you’re here, you already know the power of listening to and sharing stories from our lives. 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. Here are some of the ways that you can help StoryCorps record, preserve, and share the stories of everyday people.

Your gift of any amount ensures that StoryCorps will continue our innovative efforts to champion storytelling.
Support StoryCorps in an easy, impactful, and environmentally friendly way by giving through our automatic payment system.
Honor or remember a loved one and their story with a contribution to StoryCorps in their name.
The Honor Society recognizes those who, through their annual commitment of $1,200 or more, advance the StoryCorps mission.
Investing in stocks and mutual funds protects your future—and StoryCorps’ too—when you make a sustaining tax-free gift from your IRA.
Donor-advised funds (DAFs) allow you to establish a charitable giving account in exchange for an immediate tax deduction.
Transfer your donation to StoryCorps electronically to ensure it’s promptly received—easy for you, essential for our stories.
You can double—or even triple—the impact of your donation to StoryCorps with a matching gift from your employer.
Partner with us to expand your philanthropic initiatives, enhance brand-building efforts, engage employees, and reach new audiences through the power of storytelling.
When you choose to include StoryCorps in your estate, you’re creating your own legacy valuing our shared mission to celebrate the stories of everyday people.
