Community Impact | Arts and Education Council of St. Louis

Community Impact

At the Arts and Education Council, our goal is simple - make sure our region is rich with arts and cultural experiences for all. That's why, since 1963, we have kept art happening across the bi-state region thanks to donations from people like you who believe in the power of the arts to inspire kids, energize communities, bridge cultural divides, foster the economy and enrich lives.

We invest your donations in grants, programs and opportunities that reach more than 70 arts organizations and 1.6 million adults and children across the bi-state region each year. Together, we keep art happening.
