A Century of Service. Giving for Good.

St. Louis is our home.
Help make sure the nonprofits and cultural
organizations that enrich our community are taken care of today, tomorrow — forever.

Consider taking the St. Louis Gift Pledge. Imagine what you can bring to life with a gift of $1 million to the nonprofit of your choice.

An ardent supporter of the arts during her lifetime, today, Lucille Papendick endows St Louis. How? By having an unrestricted fund that can be used to support regional needs and challenges of today, tomorrow and forever.

With her IRA and smart estate planning strategies from the Foundation, Irene will support the female scientists of tomorrow as they find cures for viruses we do not even know exist today.

2016 - What a Year St. Louis!


It’s been a year of progress for the St. Louis Community Foundation. We moved our offices to Clayton and Big Bend, which puts us at the heart of regional philanthropy. Our donors continue to generously support the region’s nonprofits, while making use of the Community Foundation’s estate- and charitable-planning services.


  • Charitable Planning: Think Creatively

    Charitable Planning: Think Creatively

    As you evaluate your year-end giving efforts, it may be helpful to think “beyond the checkbook” and develop a charitable plan that incorporates other assets like appreciated securities or even real estate. Doing so can extend the impact of your giving dollars for the causes or nonprofits you care about.

  • Philanthropy & The Next Generation

    Philanthropy & The Next Generation

    Clarity, communication and multigenerational collaboration are essential as St. Louis Community Foundation donors seek to involve the next generation in their funds and giving activities. To jump start the dialogue, the Community Foundation recently brought 21/64, a nonprofit consulting group specializing in multigenerational engagement, to St. Louis for a day of conversation with three key groups: donors, professional wealth advisors, and Community Foundation staff.

  • Giving Opportunity - Monsanto Stock

    Giving Opportunity - Monsanto Stock

    Bayer’s acquisition of Monsanto is a cash purchase of stock for $128 per share.  From a tax-planning and charitable-giving perspective it’s a great time to thing about making a gift of Monsanto stock to a charitable entity before the final date of the reorganization.
