power2give.org, Houston’s funding platform for local arts and culture, empowers organizations to crowdfund for creative projects, inviting donors to contribute directly to the programs that are most captivating to them. With training and resources for arts and cultural organizations, power2give.org makes posting, promoting and realizing projects easy.
Every dollar given to projects on power2give.org now goes further with matching funds! With support by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance, an additional $1.00 donation will be applied to every $1.00 gifted on power2give.org. A total of $25,000 in matching support will be available, while supply lasts, to all posted projects and programs located within the City of Houston (beginning on the National Day of Giving, Tuesday, December 2, 2014).
Submit your project—no later than Monday, November 17 at 5:30 p.m.—in order for your project to go live on Tuesday, December 2, and eligible for power2give.org matching funds!
