Make Your Impact

Your one gift to the arts has a million returns!


As the region’s only privately supported United Arts Fund, A&E multiplies the power of your generous gift by combining it with other gifts to create impactful grants to nearly 70 arts organizations throughout 16 counties in the bi-state region. Those organizations, in turn, create thousands of outstanding arts and educational opportunities that impact more than two million people each year.

More residents and tourists enjoy and attend arts activities each year than all St. Louis professional sports events - combined. That statistic is a staggering validation of the arts' importance and relevance to our region.
