Request a Crowdfunding Account

The Arts and Education Council's (A&E) crowdfunding platform connects arts and arts education organizations to supporters. Organizations must be a 501(c)(3), a school arts program, an artist with a business license, or an organization with a 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor. Organizations must also be located in the Greater St. Louis bi-state area:

  • Missouri: Jefferson, Franklin, Lincoln, St. Louis City and County, St. Charles, Warren and Washington
  • Illinois: Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Jersey, Macoupin, Madison, Monroe and St. Clair

The first step in starting a crowdfunding campaign is requesting an account. Submit the form below with information about your organization's project and a staff member will be in touch to complete the setup process. We recommend requesting an account at least 45 days prior to your desired campaign start date.
