2017: A Record-Setting Year for the 
St. Louis Community Foundation;
$79.1 Million Granted to Nonprofits 

Calendar year 2017 was a banner year for the century-old St. Louis Community Foundation.

Most notably, the Foundation and its donors channeled $79.1 million dollars through 5,500 grants to nonprofits in St. Louis and around the world. Both figures eclipsed last year’s totals of 4,000 grants valued at $40 million. Nearly 85 percent of the grant dollars stayed in St. Louis helping regional nonprofits in 2017 and 2016.
