About New Story

Our purpose is to build life-changing communities.

Our Progress



Homes Funded




New Story was founded in 2015

New Story builds safe homes and transforms slums into thriving communities. Since our start 2 years ago, we've funded over 800+ homes in 7 communities around the developing world.

We believe that when you give, you should know exactly who you're helping and where the money goes. That's why we built a fully transparent platform that connects you with who you're helping, shows how 100% of your donation is being put to work, and proves your impact via video when the family moves in.

We believe housing stability and resilient communities are essential for changing society.

The Team

We're a small team, located in San Francisco, working extremely hard to change trajectories around the world.

Our Team

These individuals help drive our mission with leadership, advice, and a swift kick in the butt when we need it.

100% Promise

When you donate, every penny goes directly to home construction. Separate donors cover all of our operating expenses (thank you!) so every donation you make can go to the field.

How It Works

Video Proof

You see the exact family you're helping. We assign every donation to a family so you can see their faces & hear their story.

Our Values

Express gratitude and empathy

Always go above and beyond to do for others what you'd like them to do for you.

Think big, break down, execute

Set big measurable goals, formulate a plan, then execute the plan with relentless focus.


Do more with less. This applies to everything: marketing, design, team meetings, writing, operations, etc..

Improve through learning

Learn why something worked or didn't work, then implement the learning into future actions.

Change trajectories

We started by changing a few life trajectories, then a whole community, and then realized we're trying to change the trajectory of the entire non-profit experience.

Team of founders

A continual mindset to do whatever it takes to make it happen.
