Storytelling can help bring us all a little closer together, by showing that — as individuals and as families — we were never really that far apart to begin with. Whether you’re a fan, a family, an organization, or a foundation, you can make an underwriting donation at a variety of levels. What is the difference between Sponsorship and Underwriting? Just the profile. Underwriting is a bit more understated. It’s not quite anonymous…but, for the humbler party, it isn’t as big and flashy. You can still make an enormous impact. Your donation can still make all the difference, as you enrich, educate and entertain those same children, parents, teachers, aspiring tall tale tellers and many, many others.
We could not present the Festival premiere without underwriting support. Your generous contribution will help build the Yorklyn Storytelling Festival as the focal point for Literacy in the region, while also empowering children…including those in underserved communities.
ACCESSIBILITY IS OUR OBJECTIVE
Fundraising is no fun. But it is incredibly important. We’re working diligently to raise funds so the Yorklyn Storytelling Festival will be accessible to everyone…of all colors, creeds, and socio-economic groups. This is why your participation as an underwriter is so critical.
We understand. Sponsorship isn’t for everyone. There are many out there who would prefer to make a quieter contribution. That’s what Festival underwriting is all about. You can choose a more subtle ‘recognition’ or anonymity. But you’ll still be doing your part.
HOW TO MAKE A QUIET CONTRIBUTION
For more information about the underwriting opportunities available, download the Yorklyn Storytelling Festival Support Opportunities brochure. This simple, 2-page document will show you how you can make your contribution without becoming the story! There are four different underwriting levels to choose from. Each one provides you with the opportunity to do your thing your way. One of them is right for you.
And if you don’t find one that fits your needs, but you have something else in mind, we’re open to outside-the-box thinking about how we can quietly work together to deliver for the Festival and our mission for local Literacy.
