  • Helping Ferguson

    Like everyone in the area, the Greater Saint Louis Community Foundation was deeply saddened by the events in Ferguson, Missouri over the last several weeks. And, like others, we are looking for the best ways to help.

    The Chronicle of Philanthropy recently featured an article exploring how philanthropic leaders in our area are coming together to search for new ways to solve an old problem. We are also in conversation with other philanthropic and community leaders about strategic ways to address the long term issue in a thoughtful and meaningful way.

    If you are interested in personally exploring meaningful ways to provide aid and assistance in the aftermath of the events in Ferguson, please contact our knowledgeable staff to learn more about current needs.
