Welcome to the vibrant and growing community of storytellers and story-listeners. There are several ways you can donate – or, better yet, join the community – a community of friends, supporters, and members of Storytelling Toronto.
Donations from both members and non-members are an important part of our annual budget. Your donation supports our organizational costs (staff, office, website) and the specific programs produced under the Storytelling Toronto umbrella.
Make a Donation:
If you simply wish to make a donation rather than to become a member, please fill out the form below and check the “Donation” box. You will receive a charitable tax receipt and we will not keep your information on file.

The fine print about membership
The minimum membership donation is $30, and members are encouraged to donate more as their annual dues. Additional donations beyond $100 are of course welcome.
The membership year runs from June 30 through July 31. If a new member pays dues early, in April or May, membership will start immediately and run through July of the following year.
All members receive announcements of the annual general meeting, are eligible to serve on committees and the Board, and are included in consultations on our future.
As an added perk, members of Storytelling Toronto get a $10 discount when they register as an individual member of Storytellers of Canada – Conteurs du Canada.
You can receive the essentials by mail, if you wish, if you donate $30 or more. This includes Pippin, your Toronto Storytelling Festival and StoryFusion Cabaret! concert flyers, and (if you’re a member) notices of any general meetings.
Pippin is Storytelling Toronto’s quarterly newsletter, bringing you storytelling articles and reviews, interviews with local and visiting storytellers, and listings of events including storytelling groups and gatherings around the city and the province. Supporters of Storytelling Toronto receive an e-copy of Pippin four times per year. Click on the drop down menu below to look at back issues.
Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of Dawne McFarlane, Pippin Editor.
