On Wednesday December 14th, 2011, three cultural arts organizations, The Miami Dade-County Department of Cultural Affairs, The Arts & Science Council and The Knight Foundation introduced Power2give.org, a new fundraising platform to support arts and cultural projects in Miami.
Power2give.org was created by The Arts & Science Council, ASC which is based in North Carolina in August 2011 with the intention to offer a direct way to connect to cultural art projects with individuals and corporations interested in turning specific needs into realities. In less than 4 months, the Charlotte experience has generated more than $200,000 in direct giving.
Power2give.org works in similar fashion such as Spot.Us or Kickstarter, which have been very successful funding platforms for artists, designers, filmmakers, musicians, journalists and inventors across the U.S.
Knight Foundation supports transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts. We believe that democracy thrives when people and communities are informed and engaged. For more, visit www.knightfoundation.org.
