Positive Change Through Philanthropy
Before we began the Berges Family Foundation, we had already been giving to many St. Louis area nonprofits and witnessed what philanthropy can accomplish. Since the foundation’s inception in 2014, our main goal has been to support those programs, institutions, and organizations that are changing individual lives with depth and lasting benefits, thereby changing communities, and encouraging others to give.
We have chosen four specific focus areas – Cultural Engagement, Youth Empowerment, STEM Preparedness, and Support for Heroes – because we believe they represent the future of St. Louis through life-changing individual assistance and community growth and revitalization.
We cannot stress enough the difference you can make in another’s life that can bring about positive change and affect an entire community. Please take a moment to learn more about our beneficiaries and how you can help them with their missions.
If you would like to be considered for a Berges Family Foundation grant, please see our application guidelines page and follow the steps to apply. We choose our beneficiaries carefully and work with St. Louis Community Foundation to accomplish our giving goals.
