A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER

Tom

Thomas Waterman

Founder & Chief Storyteller

BackStory was the outcome of me fully realizing something profound. I finally understood that all people are inherently good, but don’t currently have the right vehicles to act on that goodness. The charitable world has had the right intentions to remedy this need online, but there is limitless room for innovation and the time to act is now. Why not take the giving experience to the next level?


The day I quit my corporate sales job in November of 2015 was the exact same day I began the journey to create a fulfilling and effective solution to this disconnect between people and socially-driven organizations.


After one year of intense research, countless hours of conversation with people and with non-profit organizations, continuous learning about the methods of powerful storytelling, months of web platform design and development, and nonstop process redevelopment, we are ready.


We are ready to enable you to create happier endings to worthy stories by acting on the good inside of you. This should get interesting!
