Battle Of The Slams - 180807 Syd Grand When Worlds Collide 039

Battle Of The Slams

This month, compete against 28 other cities to win the grand prize!

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, The Moth relies on donations from supporters like you to bring our special brand of storytelling into communities like yours. 

This month, 29 SLAM cities will battle it out to see which can raise the most in support of The Moth. The winning city will receive a storytelling workshop for their community, led by The Moth’s talented teaching artists.

Each city has two weeks to raise as much money as they can (see below for the full schedule.) If you’re in the audience at a SLAM during the donation period, you can donate in person. But you can’t make it, you can still make your gift to help your community win the Battle by clicking the donation link under your city below. Any donation - even just $1 or $5 will help! And, in thanks for your donation, we’ll enter you into a raffle to win a full year’s worth of free tickets with reserved seats for any local SLAM you attend!

Help your city win the Battle of the SLAMs by making your donation today. We’ll announce the winning city on November 18th—and don’t forget to share the donation link with friends, family, and on social media to help your city come out on top!

Look up your city below to find out when it's your turn to donate!
