The Parable Fund's mission is to educate, encourage, enrich and entertain listening audiences through excellent presentations and storytelling programs.

This mission is accomplished by presenting insightful and inspirational information on a wide variety of topics through original productions. Using the creative performance art of storytelling, we focus on sharing biblical and personal faith stories communicating Judeo-Christian values. We specialize in telling true stories of outstanding women through the ages whose contributions to the world serve as an inspiration for today. These programs tell the life accomplishments of women such as Corrie ten Boom, Katharina von Bora Luther, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Ruth Bell Graham, Florence Nightingale, Susanna Wesley, L.M. Montgomery, Beatrix Potter, and Jane Austen.

Performances occur in a variety of settings including churches, retreat centers, public schools, homeschool co-ops, libraries, community centers, homes, civic organizations, healthcare facilities, and senior living residences. We work with professional educators and event organizers to develop scripts and workshops that meet the needs of each organization. In addition to performing dramatizations, we work in the community through one-on-one mentoring, providing educational workshops, and hosting bridge-building events. The goal of these projects is to help equip listeners to live a more purposeful life of service to others, ultimately resulting in people living within their community in a more caring and compassionate way.


The Parable Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered with the State of Minnesota. All contributions are tax-deductible and will be promptly acknowledged with a receipt by mail.
