After three years as an organization, we’re excited to announce The Facing Project has officially become a nonprofit. This status will allow us to expand our mission of connecting people through stories to strengthen communities in three exciting new ways:
- Providing funds for communities to publish Facing Project books to help further spread their stories.
- Supporting spin off initiatives created by completed Facing Projects, such as a sleeping bag program for the homeless following a Facing Homelessness project, or funds to help support a touring art exhibit and performance after a Facing Sex Trafficking project.
- Scholarships to support continuing education (courses, conferences, travel) of writers, artists, and performers who have participated in Facing Projects.
We want to invite you to be a part of the story this Giving Tuesday! You can help support these programs by making a tax-deductible donation.
This week we officially got word from our lawyer that we can begin collecting donations. We haven’t set up an online way to give yet, so we’re doing this old school. Remember mail, stamps, and checks? That’s how we’re doing this.
Write your checks to The Facing Project Gives and send them to:

Just this week alone we had three new projects join the 30+ Facing communities. We’re excited about how this new chapter of the Facing Project story can spread the power of face-to-face conversations and stories in these communities and communities around the world.
