Storybook Community and Storybook Foundation will focus on promoting uplifting videos and stories designed to counter the violent and sexually oriented material that has come to dominate the mainstream media.
Storybook Community [SBC] is a for-profit Texas limited liability company that will have a wholly-owned non-profit subsidiary called The Storybook Foundation [SBF]. The Foundation will be a wholly-owned subsidiary that will register as a tax-exempt charitable organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Storybook Community will provide all of the Foundation's staffing, overhead and administrative services without compensation. Other than receiving these services from Storybook Community, the Foundation will be self sustaining through fundraising events, government grants and crowdfunding campaigns. Storybook Community also anticipates that its advertisers and other supporters may provide additional funding sources for the Foundation. This unique structure was designed to create maximum exposure and revenue for our mission.
SBF will act as a marketing arm for SBC and will be a “true non-profit” with minimal overhead. Through this strategy, the Foundation will be able to give at least 85% of the proceeds or more; back to the community in the form of “positive shock” and “pay it forward” monies!
The SBC student journalist and broadcasting teams will be promoting positive life direction, good decision-making, and a sense of belonging. The focus is on positive news and relevant subjects impacting our community. See our “Big Change” and “Positive Shock” videos featuring random acts of kindness to unsuspecting people around Houston caught on video…such as:
Our goal is to showcase the good-works of the community! Create additional exposure and awareness for local non-profits that strive to make a difference. A centralized exposure point for charities and faith based programs that provide help services and information to the community. We want to collaborate and work with key charitable organizations as an advocate and supporter on behalf of our Storybook Community users.
