10 Things You Can Do To Support Voice of Witness

Amplify Unheard Voices

Here are ten things you can do to further your partnership with Voice of Witness and support ethics-driven human rights storytelling.

1. Read. Check out the entire Voice of Witness Book Series and commit to reading one that is new to you this year. Then, share a VOW book with a friend or colleague.

2. Donate money. We believe that social justice storytelling is critical to advancing human rights, and we see our donors as vital partners in this work. We rely on the support from individuals in our community to sustain and grow this work. Can you help us meet our goal?

3. Maximize your gift. Partner in one of our campaigns to offer a 1:1 “matching gift” to incentivize new donors; donate by check or ACH to eliminate transaction fees; or ask your company or a friend if they’ll match your gift.

4. Amplify VOW’s work. Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media. Share our posts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and encourage your network to do the same!

5. Hire us. Could oral history storytelling amplify the work that you’re doing? Through our consulting services, Voice of Witness can facilitate workshops, provide program or curricular support, or work with you to develop and guide in-depth, customized storytelling projects that advance your mission and goals.

6. Donate time. Time is an incredibly valuable gift to give, and we recognize the value of time from our volunteers as equally as money from our financial donors. We are often in need of editorial and education advisors, and we are also seeking new members for the VOW board of directors. Visit the “Get Involved” section of our website for more information. Also, consider volunteering your time with some of our community partners: East Bay Sanctuary Covenant, Centro Legal de la Raza, National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, Youth UnMuted, and V-Day

7. Share your network. Our end-of-year fundraiser utilizes peer-to-peer fundraising. One of the quickest and most effective ways to expand our community of supporters is through you! Join our team of “champions’’ that helps spread the word to their networks about our work and asks for contributions to our end of year fundraising goal.

8. Commit to inclusivity. Read Community-Centric Fundraising’s ten principles. Join us in working to transform fundraising and philanthropy, so that they are grounded in racial and economic justice.

9. Partner in our Sharing History Initiative. Help us get more copies of VOW books into under-resourced classrooms and communities throughout the country.

10. Donate access. In an effort to diversify our revenue streams, we have partnered with Charity Network to raffle or auction off unique experiences. Do you have access to a one-of-a-kind event or collector’s memorabilia that you could donate to VOW’s revenue diversification efforts?

Thank you for your continued support of Voice of Witness and our mission to amplify the voices of people impacted by—and fighting against—injustice. We can’t do it without you.
