The Susan Jasper Telling Tales Endowment Fund

To celebrate our 15th anniversary year we are proud to announce the creation of an endowment fund as a way of ensuring that Telling Tales is able to serve our community for generations to come. The fund is named after our inspiring founder and outgoing Executive Director, Susan Jasper, in honour of her unwavering commitment to children’s literacy and raising the next generation of empowered readers.

Through a partnership with the Hamilton Community Foundation we are working to secure the future of the organization and remain a fixture in the community we love. 

“We are excited to be working with the Hamilton Community Foundation to establish an endowment fund as a very concrete way of marking this anniversary with our commitment to building the Telling Tales legacy,” states Chair, Laura Lukasik. “As the fund grows in perpetuity, it will provide a revenue stream to help us to keep expanding our programming and keep inspiring young readers at Telling Tales events, in schools (virtually and in-person) and in our community. As we celebrate 15 fantastic years, we are more convinced than ever that this story deserves to be a never-ending story.”
