Storybird Sponsorships

Last Updated: Jan 25, 2018 01:58PM EST
Our mission at Storybird is to inspire a new generation of writers and readers. To do that we keep the service free in order to reach as many people as possible.

To pay our bills we sell books and merchandise and, occasionally, accept sponsorships from companies we like and admire. These can be startups like Kano, who build computers for kids; or big companies like General Mills, who through their philanthropy have donated millions of dollars to literacy organizations.

Sponsorships on Storybird differ from regular advertising. We don’t run an ad network or serve banner ads, collect or sell private information, or track our members (see our Privacy Policy for further details). Instead, we work closely with companies to create tools or information to empower, educate, or enrich young creators.

This might be a blog post on how to create art with code, or a writing challenge on family themes. It could be a “download unlock” day, where a sponsor pays to unlock book and poetry downloads for members. Or an art sponsorship to further expand our image library. In each case, we clearly identify the sponsor and explain their contribution to the platform.

If you’re an educator, parent, or potential sponsor and want to learn more about the program, feel free to contact us at any time.

Please Note:
We sometimes feature people or companies on our blog that are not sponsors—just folks we like and want to highlight. In those cases there are no sponsor labels.
