Here are three grant opportunities you do not want to miss out on.
The Black Communities Investment Initiative
The Black Communities Investment Initiative was established at the St. Louis Community Foundation to provide operating support and/or capacity building opportunities to Black-led nonprofits directly serving Black communities in the St. Louis Metro Area. Black communities – and the individuals, families, nonprofits, and businesses that comprise them – have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic fall-out.
The Chiron Fund
The Chiron Fund will fund promising projects of nonprofit organizations with a strong track record of facilitating positive change for individuals living in economically challenging circumstances.
Chiron is a Greek symbol that represents the “wounded healer.” With this grounding in healing, the Chiron Fund focuses on fostering empathetic understanding of the circumstances of those whose lives are touched by this work.
Gateway Regional Environment Fund
The purpose of the Gateway Regional Environment Fund (“GREF”) is to support projects in the St. Louis metro area that seek to protect or improve the natural environment by reducing or ameliorating harmful human-caused impacts including, but not limited to global warming, pollution, unsustainable land use, destruction of habitat, and over population. The Fund’s goal is to make the region more environmentally sustainable.
