About Us

Founded in 2016, The Black Funders of St. Louis giving circle is a nontraditional form of philanthropy with a mission that encourages its membership to pool time, talents, and treasures to invest in the black community and positively impact the well-being of black children, youth, adults, and families in the St. Louis Metropolitan area.

A giving circle is a form of participatory philanthropy where groups of individuals donate their own money or time to a pooled fund, decide together where to give these away to charity or community projects and, in doing so, seek to increase their awareness of and engagement in the issues covered by the charity or community project.

Many circles, in addition to donating their money, also contribute their time and skills to support local causes.
