Hatch for Good acts like a concierge, connecting you to a suite of tools and a growing community to help you leverage storytelling to drive social impact and improve the lives of the poor and vulnerable around the world.

Stories with purpose don’t just materialize—they’re strategically planned, they’re creatively crafted, and they're designed to achieve measurable outcomes.

How It Works

Hatch for Good has four interactive sections, each designed to help you strategically craft, curate and share stories to drive social impact. As you answer questions, you will be provided with suggested tools, case studies and resources that are customized to your needs. These recommendations will always be saved to your profile so you can access them later.

As you build your storytelling profile, you can explore case studies, guides on the latest platforms and look for ideas from storytelling thought leaders in the Explore section. These resources can also be saved to your profile for later use.

We want to bring you proven examples of successful storytelling for social good, and often the best stories will come from you. Throughout Hatch for Good, you are encouraged to connect to and learn from other storytellers, to contribute comments, ideas and case studies, and to invite others to join the community.
