Non-profit organizations often work tirelessly and in relative obscurity to fulfill their missions. However, the history of their work, values, goals, and experience is too rarely preserved and shared. When changes occur in staffing, leadership, services or funding, valuable history and lessons often get lost. Capturing the stories of your non-profit is a powerful way to celebrate your successes, safeguard your survival, and contribute to important shared history. Life History Services can help you explore and capture your unique tale.

Possible non-profit, oral history themes might include

  • Origin Stories
  • A History of the Cause
  • Projects, Plans & Services Over Time
  • Donors & Their Passions
  • Stories by and about Leadership, Staff, Volunteers & Recipients
  • Fundraising Challenges & Successes
