stARTup-StL Crowdfunding is a platform operated by the Arts and Education Council that connects donors with arts and arts education projects in their communities. Arts and culture organizations in the St. Louis region can post and promote projects in need of funding, then donors can contribute directly to the projects that they believe in.
This tool is made possible by the Arthur and Helen Baer Charitable Foundation. It was relaunched in August 2016 as a successor to A&E's original crowdfunding site, Power2Give.org, established in 2014 with generous support from the Arthur and Helen Baer Charitable Foundation. The crowdfunding platform has helped organizations raise more than $100,000 since its inception in 2014.
