Storytelling Legacy Society

For our future. For the stories yet to be told.

Do you wonder who will continue the American storytelling revival?

Make the impact of a lifetime on the future of humanity’s oldest, most accessible art form.

The Storytelling Legacy Society recognizes ISC’s generous supporters who have made legacy gifts –arrangements made today to make a gift sometime in the future. Storytelling Legacy Society membership is about celebrating the power of storytelling to entertain, teach, connect, heal, and create a better world. Members are recognized for their remarkable contribution to preserving the American storytelling revival for future generations.

Membership does not involve any continued obligations, dues, or solicitation beyond your legacy gift. Joining allows us to recognize you for your generosity and commitment to storytelling, and you may even inspire others to make similar gifts. Membership benefits include:

  • Four (4) complimentary tickets to the National Storytelling Festival each year, including access to the Hospitality Suite and the famous Yarnspinners’ Party.
  • Invitation to the annual Storytelling Legacy Society dinner.
  • Opportunity to participate in Legacy Stories, where members can work with a professional story recorder to preserve their life story as a unique keepsake for their friends and family.
  • Access to special programming throughout the year.
  • One performance given free in their name for up to thirty (30) children, seniors, or any other select population of the member’s choice.
  • Special communications keeping members updated on their impact.
  • Recognition on the website, in event programs, and other public spaces throughout the year.
  • An opportunity to impact the future of humanity’s oldest, most-democratic art form.

Giving back to support this art form is something we wanted to do to make the world a better place. The International Storytelling Center’s mission to connect people through the power of story is more important than ever, and we’re proud to know our support will keep the American storytelling revival alive for generations to come.
