Happy Aster

Mission: To support great causes through great music.

The Aster Donovan Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization governed by an all-volunteer board of directors. Based in Austin, Texas, the Foundation strives to raise support and awareness for worthy causes and organizations by promotion of the arts and music.

The Aster Donovan Foundation was founded in 2004 as a means to stay connected to our sister, daughter, and friend who we lost in November of that year. Aster lived in and loved Austin, and as a result, the foundation primarily focuses its efforts on causes that benefit the Austin community.

The Foundation derives some of its inspiration from Wendell Berry, Dave Eggers, the Dalai Lama and the Dallas Mavericks. We believe music makes the world a better place.
