power2give.org was designed and created by the Arts & Science Council in Charlotte, NC as a way to expand the support of the local cultural sector.  Since its launch in August 2011, the site has grown and is now operational in 24 communities, including Charlotte.  As of April 4, 2014 the site has raised over $5.4MM in support, posted over 2,200 projects and received more than 24,000 donations.

You have the power2give!


To launch the platform in new communities, power2give.org partners with a local Host organization that is often the lead arts and culture advocate for the community.  The Host organization sponsors the site locally, promotes the site, approves projects posted and processes the financial transactions.


power2give.org publishes the "Power Report" on a bi-weekly basis offering inspiring stories, helpful tips and news about power2give across the country. Have some interesting news? Tell us!
