Make a One-Time Donation to One Story

One Story is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) not-for-profit literary organization, dedicated to celebrating the art form of the short story and supporting the writers who write them.

Unlike many literary not-for-profits, we have no single large donor or organization supporting our work, and subscription revenue covers only half of our expenses. We rely on a large pool of readers and supporters to make up the difference.

Please join us in publishing the magazines and in developing new educational programming for writers at all levels today. Your one time-donation will be immediately put to work.

Donations of $100 or more will be acknowledged in One Story and One Teen Story for a year.

Adopt a Short Story: From now until April 15th, we’re seeking 240 different readers to adopt an issue and help ensure that One Story makes it to issue 300. To adopt, give $25 or more and we’ll send you your very own back issue of One Story along with an adoption certificate.
