As part of its corporate charter as a PBC, Kickstarter donates 5 percent of its aftertax profits to arts education groups and organizations fighting systemic inequality.

Yancey Strickler serves on the board of New Inc., the New Museum's incubator for art, design, and technology. He has been named one of Fast Company's Most Creative People , listed among Vanity Fair's New Establishment, and received a Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Award from the Tribeca Film Festival.
