May 1st is “Give STL Day”.
The St. Louis Community Foundation has been helping St. Louisans put charitable dollars to work since 1915.
They are a respected source of information for donors as they seek to clarify the goals that guide their giving. In addition, they help donors assess the resources they have to give and connect them with charities, which are aligned with their goals and doing effective work.
The Foundation also serves as an experienced administrator of charitable funds and provides the customized giving tools that make giving easy, maximize tax benefits, and give donors confidence that their dollars are making a real difference in the lives of others.
The Foundation has more than 600 individual charitable funds that exceed $500 million in assets. On behalf of its donors, the Community Foundation makes approximately $80 million in grants annually to nonprofits that help shape our region, touch communities across the nation, and extend around the globe.
The St. Louis Community Foundation is as an unbiased, technically astute, and collaborative charitable-giving resource. Their combined expertise promotes effective charitable giving and they promote regional philanthropy through:
Charitable Intent – helping to articulate what charitable giving means to donors, enabling them to be more confident in their giving.
Charitable Financial Planning – leveraging tax-efficient giving tools in creative ways to achieve charitable as well as wealth and estate planning objectives for donors.
Community Investment – helping donors make thoughtful investments that tackle community issues in measurable ways both now and for the next 100 years.
Asset Stewardship – managing traditional and non-traditional assets in support of donors’ short- and long-term charitable aspirations.
