Nonprofits organizations make the St. Louis region a better place to live every day through mission-centered work. We are here to support, strengthen and sustain the difference nonprofits make in our community.
Working with our donors, we help them impact causes they care deeply about and connect with nonprofits and community leaders doing effective work.
Our Expertise / Partnership
We support nonprofit organizations by:
- Working with donors to create the greatest financial impact for nonprofit organizations.
- Strategizing with donors, nonprofits and community leaders for collaboration, enlightened perspectives and innovative solutions.
- Helping nonprofits receive gifts of complex financial assets that your organization may not have the resources to accept.
- Connecting with nonprofit organizations working in the areas of our donor’s interests.
Connecting for Impact.
Through our role as a community convener, we encourage collaboration between our donors, nonprofits and community leaders. Our collective impact touches lives and makes our region a more equitable and vibrant place to live and work.

We're here to help.
In rare instances, the St. Louis Community Foundation will serve as the fiscal sponsor for organizations that are in the process of establishing their status as nonprofit entities. Through this relationship, we are able to accept donations and provide some financial oversight until organizations have been certified by the IRS.
