We primarily partner with other nonprofits and institutions that are interested in recording and archiving voices in their communities.
In our StoryCorps cities (Atlanta and Chicago) and stops along our Mobile Tour, we partner with local organizations that serve communities whose voices are least heard in our history books and in the media. We also occasionally seek to partner with organization based in specific communities as part of a funded initiative. These partnerships are free of charge.
Organizations can bring our staff to their community in custom partnerships. For a fee we can facilitate on-site recording days, create unique content for distribution, and offer trainings and workshops for organizations or groups seeking to launch their own recording project. Program fees are on sliding scale based on a partner's annual budget. Fees for StoryCorps training partnerships start at approximately $10,000, and fees for recording partnerships start at approximately $25,000.
Please note that we generally need to start planning on-site recordings and trainings at least three months in advance. To learn more or send us an inquiry about a potential partnership, visit our website.
We also offer corporate partnerships and collaborations. For more information about these partnerships and collaborations, submit a request to us here, and tell us about your organization and how you would like to work together.
The StoryCorps App is a tool that is available to anyone, anywhere at no cost, and no formal partnership is needed. Check out our Strategies for Groups to learn more about how you can get started recording and archiving right way.
