A Century of Service. Giving for Good.

Supporting Organizations

Supporting organizations offer the flexibility and convenience of a donor advised fund but provide a more formal giving structure for donors. These independent foundations are legally affiliated with the Community Foundation, but have their own boards, grantmaking programs, and investment structures. While they typically require substantial charitable assets to start, they benefit from our public charity status and avoid much of the regulations, complexity, and cost associated with a private foundation. They also benefit from the Community Foundation’s recordkeeping, accounting, grants management, and consultative services that support all our donors in their commitment to make a significant difference through charitable giving.


For more information on establishing a fund at the St. Louis Community Foundation, contact Christine Burghoff, Director of Giving Strategies, at 314-880-4967 or Donna Frederick, Giving Strategist at 314-880-4958.
