Case for Support

At Telling Tales we are passionate about making literacy accessible to all and bringing people and communities together through a shared love of stories. You’re reading this today because you believe in the power of literacy. Reading opens new worlds and empowers children to think critically and imagine a brighter future.

Research shows that children who read have better educational, health, and social outcomes later in life. Literacy really is a key step on the pathway to broader social inclusion and fully engaged participation in society.

By donating to Telling Tales you are making a tangible difference to children and families in your community. Your support enables us to welcome thousands to our renowned annual Festival and bring much needed year-round programming to Hamilton, Halton, and the surrounding area.
