National Philanthropy Day

In recent years, the idea of community has become more important than ever. We are all looking to reach out and connect to our friends, family, and neighbors. On November 15, National Philanthropy Day celebrates the charitable work that everyone does to make a difference and create an impact in their community. 

The St. Louis Community Foundation’s staff live work together and with the community to build a foundation for the future of St. Louis. We asked our staff members to reflect on what philanthropy means to them on a personal level. 

What does philanthropy mean to you? How will you integrate more giving into your life? For a full list of all National Philanthropy Day events across North America, visit
