Edward Jones raises more than $1 million for A&E
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), August 8, 2017 - The Arts and Education Council (A&E) announced that Edward Jones and its associates have committed more than $1 million to A&E's annual campaign.

Nearly 2,800 associates contributed more than $680,000 toward the campaign through Edward Jones' annual workplace giving initiative - the largest in A&E's 54-year history. The firm itself made a corporate gift of $330,000, bringing the campaign total to more than $1 million.

"We believe vibrant arts organizations make St. Louis a better place to live," said Edward Jones Managing Partner Jim Weddle, "and we are proud of our associates and partners who led and supported our campaign. Giving back to the communities where we live and work is a foundation of our firm culture."

The campaign was steered by partner chair Katherine "Kit" Sundararaman and associate co-chairs Mary Pat Brown, Irasa Downing and Denise Ruebsam with nearly 300 associates participating on the firm's A&E campaign committee. Edward Jones launched its home office efforts on May 13 with a Lip Sync Battle featuring partner and associate teams performing on stage at Edward Jones' Des Peres headquarters. Dance and musical performances by A&E grantees highlighted kick-off activities for Edward Jones' campus in Maryland Heights. The Lip Sync Battle, a first for the annual campaign, raised $20,000 toward the firm's goal.

"The Arts and Education Council is humbled and moved by the generosity of Edward Jones associates," said Cynthia A. Prost, A&E president and CEO. "We are grateful to have such a creative and passionate partner in Edward Jones and we are inspired by the spirit of caring the firm's partners and associates have for giving back to the St. Louis community.

"This year's campaign serves as an example of what can be accomplished when corporate citizens, their employees and A&E come together to make the bi-state region a more vibrant place to live, learn, work and play," Prost continued.

Edward Jones will continue to build upon its impressive, record-breaking fundraising effort this fall as more than 500 financial advisors and branch office administrators across the area host workplace campaigns for A&E as well.

Edward Jones' campaign is the largest of more than 60 annual workplace giving efforts to support the Arts and Education Council's mission to provide financial, professional development, incubation and promotion support to nearly 70 arts and arts education organizations across the 16-county bi-state region.
