Deepen your commitment to the Storydwelling community!

Storydwelling has been midwifed into the world through the generosity and imagination of many local Bend individuals and families, alongside the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the United Methodist Church. We are grateful for this good start.

Now, it is time for people who call Storydwelling home–spiritual home, movement home, community home–to deepen our commitment. By the end of 2021, we aim to call 50 individuals and families monthly gifters.


Why is this important? Financial gifts make sure Storydwelling can:

  • staff and lead our spiritual and organizing work
  • organize families and plant co-ops through ReVillage
  • bring neighbors together to take action for justice
  • build an emergency benevolence fund for anyone who might be in crisis
  • offer safe and beautiful ways of gathering during the pandemic and beyond
  • invest in other local nonprofits whose work aligns with our values, such as Causa, REACH and IMIrJ

You are invited to consider gifting monthly, because that is the kind of commitment–whether it’s $5 a month or $500 a month–that tells a powerful story: a story about a creative network of people who walk together a way of belonging, ritual and revolution.

You can invest one time or on a monthly basis here.

If a monthly investment to Storydwelling is already a part of your giving practice, thank you. THANK YOU. You have gone deep, and we are so grateful.

Whether you call Storydwelling your spiritual home, you love someone who does, or you’re just happy this community exists at all, if you have been waiting to put Storydwelling into your family’s budget—-now is the time.

There are several ways you can invest once or monthly:

  • Drop it in the mail. Checks can be made to Storydwelling. We receive mail at: 680 NW Bond St., Bend, OR 97701 (our local partner Bend Church).
  • Online.
  • Set up a recurring donation through your bank. This is easy and saves us both from credit card fees!

Thank you!
