The St. Louis Community Foundation is proud that one of our component funds—the Krause-Papendick Fund— was recently able to support the St. Louis Classical Guitar Society (SLCGS) in purchasing guitars for use in Normandy High School’s new classical guitar class. Other donors include Midwest Bank Centre, Chris Kremeyer (CEO of Beyond Housing), and Margaret Gilleo (SLCGS board member). Read more about the story here.
Born in 1900, Lucille Papendick lived in an antique-filled home on Victor Street until her death in 1992. She left a gift to the St. Louis Community Foundation, asking that it be used to support the arts, culture, education, and other charitable needs of the community—both those she’d loved during her lifetime, and those yet to come. To date, Ms. Papendick’s fund has made grants totalling over $300,000 to nonprofits in our community.
