SUPPORT THE MISSION

There are three simple ways to give.

A LOT OF WHAT WE DO IS FREE

That does not mean it is free to produce this content.

That is very important to us, because it removes a significant barrier to participate. If we really are going to use innovation to improve the human condition, we need as many smart humans as possible participating. So, we bring people together for free.

One-Time Gift

The cost to produce the weekly Thursday Gathering is about $150,000/yr (full organizational budget is approx $400,000). You gotta figure 25,000 attendees and 550 educational sessions takes some serious work. Oh, and just as a point of clarification, the sessions and workshop are not presented by check-writers — this is not a pay-to-play scenario. First things people often say is: “Heck, you could totally charge admission and charge the presenters.” We could, but that would change the vibe. It would be a totally different experience.

So we look to those who get the most out of it — the attendees. We’d love to have nice people, who believe in the mission, to financially support this nonprofit organization. You attend, you have an enjoyable beverage, you meet some great people, and…

…and you support Venture Café St. Louis. You can make an easy monthly contribution or a one-time gift. You do that and we will make a serious dent in that budget. And we can continue to focus on our mission.
