Making St. Louis A Great Place to Live
The Berges Family Foundation supports the institutions and organizations that make St. Louis a great place to live, work, visit, and invest. Our goal is to invest our philanthropic dollars in ways that we feel are most likely to lead to specific and systemic change over time and benefit our communities on a meaningful, measurable level.
Please note that although our categories appear to be broad, we are specifically looking for organizations that engage those they serve deeply, with the goal of igniting real and lasting change in their individual lives and, over time, our entire region.
We typically do not provide event support, fund pilot projects, or provide general operating support for individual schools through the Foundation.
We accept grant requests in the following funding areas:
Cultural Engagement, STEM Preparedness, Youth Empowerment, Support for Heroes
We want to work with those organizations who can
provide documentation or proof of the following:
Proven results and measurable impact
Organizational excellence in financials, staff leadership, and boards of directors
Sustainability with a diverse contributor base
Collaboration with others
Serving a diverse population
