$7Min charitable contributions dedicated to arts, culture and recreation nonprofits.
The performance was part of programming put on by Los Angeles nonprofit Young Storytellers(opens new window), which uses storytelling to help elementary, middle and high school students explore their creativity, set goals and build confidence. It has impacted more than 15,000 students since its founding in 1997.
Its programming typically takes place in classrooms, but that has not been possible as schools closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Through its new The Story Clubhouse(opens new window) program, the nonprofit has been tapping famous actors and actresses to volunteer to perform plays written by its students.
To help Young Storytellers adapt, U.S. Bank has donated a $10,000 grant and helped the organization secure a $130,000 loan through the SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The grant is helping it create infrastructure to digitize services, and the loan has provided a lifeline to keep its nine full-time and two part-time employees.
The Young Storytellers grant is among $7 million in recent funding from U.S. Bank dedicated to arts, culture and recreation nonprofits. It’s part of the company’s giving platform Community Possible focused on supporting organizations in the areas of Work, Home and, in this case, Play.
