3 simple ways to keep art happening
21 November, 2019
Did you know you can increase your support of the Arts and Education Council without breaking the bank by buying holiday gifts online, purchasing groceries and using social media? Here's how you can utilize each of these tools to help us keep art happening.
Buying holidays gifts online
Every purchase made on Amazon has the potential to support the Arts and Education Council through AmazonSmile, Amazon’s charitable giving program. For every dollar you spend, Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase to a charity of your choice. While your shopping experience will remain unchanged, the St. Louis area will be significantly impacted by your purchases.
How to get started:
- Go to smile.amazon.com.
- Log into your Amazon account.
- Enter the “Arts & Education Council of Greater St. Louis” as your charity of choice.
- Start shopping!
Supporting the Arts and Education Council can be as easy as buying groceries at your local Schnucks. Through the eScrip program, Schnucks offers 3% of any purchases to your favorite nonprofit—the Arts and Education Council.
How to get started:
- Stop at Schnucks and pick up a My Schnucks Card at customer service.
- Register your card online at escrip.com/schnucks or by calling 1.800.931.6258.
- Show your card at checkout.
Using social media
If you don’t already, you can follow along with the Arts and Education Council on one of your favorite social media channels. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. You can also invite your friends to follow along.
If you want to take your support one step further, you can utilize Facebook fundraising. Birthdays are a great occasion to ask your network to support the Arts and Education Council, but you can launch a fundraiser year-round.
Thank you for all you do keep art happening! Your gift to the Arts and Education Council furthers our ability to make the St. Louis region a more vibrant arts community for all.
