Come Together Ferguson


Summer 2016
Call for Nonprofit Proposals

The Come Together Ferguson Fund is seeking applications from nonprofit organizations operating within the City of Ferguson and its adjacent municipalities. 


The Fund Advisors are looking for organizations that are working with youth ages 5 – 24 that are providing summer enrichment services.  These programs can include: day camps, ministry programs, school based education enrichment programs, life and job skill programs to prepare young people for summer employment opportunities and any other program that is designed to meet the immediate needs of young people in the community for which summer funding would still be helpful.


The grants are small in nature and are designed to be supplemental grants for programs that need funding for increased capacity during the summer.  Grant allocations will be between $2,000 and $5,000 depending upon the unmet need.


Come Together Ferguson is stewarded by a group of community leaders including residents, clergy, classroom teachers, law enforcement officers, business owners and other stakeholders in the Ferguson community and is a component fund of the St. Louis Community Foundation.
