About Us

accreditedcfsealThe St. Louis Communitiy Foundation, the first community foundation established in Missouri, is proud to be among an elite group nationwide to be confirmed in compliance with the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations.

The St. Louis Community Foundation has been helping St. Louisans put charitable dollars to work since 1915. We help our donors address the issues that are most important to them in the communities they care about most.

We are a respected resource providing St. Louisans the information they need to clarify the goals that guide their giving. We help donors assess the resources they have to give and connect them with charities doing effective work aligned with their goals.

We are an expert administrator of charitable funds,  providing customized giving tools that make giving easy, maximize tax benefits, and give donors the confidence that their dollars are making a real difference in the lives of others.

The Foundation has 550 individual charitable funds that total over $350 million in assets. These funds annually make over $40 million in grants that shape our region, touch communities across the nation, and reach across the globe.
