StoryCorps is an independent non-profit whose mission is to honor and celebrate one another's lives through listening. StoryCorps has one of the largest archives of American voices ever created, with interviews gathered from more than 50,000 people in all 50 states. Each StoryCorps interview is recorded on a free CD for participants to take home and share, and is also archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
Each week, millions of Americans listen to StoryCorps' award-winning broadcasts on NPR's Morning Edition. Fifty of StoryCorps' most emblematic stories have been collected in the New York Times bestseller, Listening Is an Act of Love (Penguin Press). A follow-up book, Mom: Remarkable Stories of American Mothers from the StoryCorps Project, scheduled for publication in Spring 2010, will feature inspiring stories by and about mothers. StoryCorps' major funders include: The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), The Atlantic Philanthropies, The Ford Foundation, The Annenberg Foundation, The Kaplen Foundation, and Joe and Carol Reich. – less–ZoomInfo
