We Need Your Support

Please join us in helping to preserve these life histories for future generations. Your tax-deductible donation can make a real difference. A fundamental principle of YourStory involves making our services available to as many people as possible. Every single life history is important and worth preserving. For this reason, we offer our services to cancer patients and their families without charge.

YourStory is a non-profit project of the College of Humanities at the University of Utah funded by grants, personal donations and corporate and foundation gifts. If you could help in any way---no matter how small the donation—it will allow us to continue this wonderful work. Join the other generous donors who support YourStory.
