Our Partners positively impact kids and teens by helping the Highlights Foundation fulfill our mission: to amplify the voices of storytellers who inform, educate, and inspire children to become their best selves.
We seek partners who understand the power of story and the storytellers who create it, and believe in its ability to inspire future generations.
Opportunities for Impact Include:
We have several partnership options for corporations who want to impact future generations in new and meaningful ways.

Your Partnership Supports:
Authors, illustrators, and creatives (collectively: storytellers) join us to learn the craft and business of creating and publishing for children. We offer more than 100 options in-person and online each year.
Sometimes educators and librarians join us as authors and illustrators themsleves. Others join us for professional development opportunities to better serve the children whose lives they touch.
Publishing professionals help get stories into the hands of kids in a myriad of ways. They join us as both faculty and participants for craft and professional develoment workshops.
There are many individuals and organizations who have long championed children’s literature as a catalyst for positive change. We strive to amplify these innovators and provide opportunities to work with and grow our community.
We encourage the interest and support of our partners, donors, funders, grantors, and sponsors, but these do not constitute an endorsement (express or implied) of any products, services, offerings, companies, opinions, and/or political positions.
