WE'RE A COMMUNITY OF DOERS

Citizens with a cause (or two).

As much as we love the power of strong narrative, it’s you (our dope reader) who has even more power. That’s why every story provides actionable ways for you to get involved. It could be sharing an inspiring article, volunteering with a cause you just discovered, or hitting up an event with friends.

We will keep the goodness going by giving you ways to connect with some seriously certifiable badasses. All you have to do is get real about what matters to you and take action how you see fit.

HOW OUR CONTENT WORKS

We see one of two scenarios all the time.

SCENARIO 1: You feel fatigued by what seems like insurmountable opportunities. You’re volunteering, attending a local artist showcase, and then bouncing over to your favorite nonprofit’s fundraising dinner. Oh, and you can’t forget to hit Streets Alive – and this is all happening in one weekend!

SCENARIO 2: The exact opposite problem. You’re new to this whole social impact thing and not quite sure where to start. Maybe you hope to expand your horizons and fill your schedule with things that matter.

However you found your way here, we want your experience to be positive, not stressful. That’s why we’ve structured our content as categories so you can easily find what you’re looking for within a community, or hopefully, reflections of your own identity. You get to decide what piques your interest and cut straight to action.

If you know of a kick-ass cause you have the scoop on, shoot us a note here.

BEYOND THE STORY

Life’s pretty hectic these days, huh? We get it and want to meet you where you are. But we also want to challenge you to be intentional about how you can leverage your unique talents to give back. Because we know an ask like that can feel like a tall order, we are holding ourselves just as accountable.

Beyond the Story is one of the ways we want to give it forward too. Since our goal is to create a vibrant, connected social impact community our focus right now is acting as a resource connector. Head here to find out more.
