How would you like to donate?

    It’s the giving season and we hope you’ll keep Story District in mind.

    Your tax-deductible donation will support ongoing and new programming, outreach and coaching for new voices, the re-launch of the Story District podcast, and expansion of our team.

    Story District fans often tell us that "our work is important” because, through storytelling, we promote understanding and build community at a time when we desperately need to find common ground and believe in our common humanity. 

    We are inspired to continue this work every time we hear comments like this, from partners like the GLBT Latino History Project who co-produced Queer Cuentos: Orgulla, Resilience, and Resistencia for Latino Heritage Month and National Coming Out Day: "Thank you... this meant a lot to our community... especially now... it's been a rough year for our community and people really appreciated this."

    And from veterans through our collaboration with Armed Services Arts Partnership who said things like: "I think anybody, like everybody, anywhere you go in the world, if you have the chance to take a storytelling class, do it because there’s so many layers to what we did in the last four weeks, it’s amazing."

    Make a single or recurring on-line donation or send a check made out to Story District to 3329 Georgia Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20010

    Donate $50 or more and we'll send you Story District's limited-edition custom storytelling game cards featuring original artwork by Branddave and Story District themes from the last five years.
