Know how can you support us
In order to make our workshops available to all families, Uptown Stories workshop tuition is “pay-what-you-can,” and last year, over 80% of our families paid reduced tuition. In order to continue our work, however, we need your support. As a federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, financial contributions to Uptown Stories are are 100% tax deductible.
Uptown Stories also seeks donations of writing materials (including pens, pencils, markers, notebooks, lined paper, drawing pads, folders, and binders) as well as non-perishable, nut-free snacks.

Supporter $100 : Supporters provide the snacks we need to feed an entire class of young writers for one semester.
Advocate $500 : Advocates provide full tuition for one young writer in need.
Champion $1000 : Champions support the editing, layout, and publication of a bound anthology for every student in one semester.
