You’ve seen the billboards, snippets on the news and social media everywhere – giveSTLday is back! Over 900 non-profits in our community have joined in this fun and important challenge and are hoping that St. Louis will live up to its reputation as the Most Generous City in the United States! Of course we hope you’ll choose to donate to INOBTR on May 3rd! Plus, there are Cardinal Tickets given to donors hourly and a chance that your donation will be doubled during POWER HOURS.
This year’s Give STL Day effort will be held on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 from midnight to midnight. On that day, generous St. Louisans are encouraged to visit GiveSTLDay.org and make a contribution of $10 or more to the local organizations of their choice. In addition to using GiveSTLDay.org to make a donation, people can also watch as the online tally board posts the region’s fundraising progress in real time. New this year, nine digital billboards throughout the area will also carry the region’s 24-hour fundraising totals in real time. On this same day, approximately 100 community foundations nationwide are also undertaking similar fundraising initiatives. Last year, Give STL Day raised more than $2.1 million for nearly 790 participating nonprofits in St. Louis.
“The St. Louis region does amazing things when we come together,” said Amelia Bond, president and CEO of the St. Louis Community Foundation. “Give STL Day offers all of us an opportunity to contribute to the organizations we know and love, while also enabling us to discover and donate to others that also do tremendous work. Let’s make May 3 a day of giving to remember!”
Presented by the St. Louis Community Foundation, Give STL Day is also being sponsored by The Private Client Reserve – U.S. Bank, Cardinals Care, Wells Fargo Advisors, Archford Capital, and the St. Louis Blues. The St. Louis Community Foundation is a nonprofit foundation composed of more than 500 charitable funds with total assets of approximately $300 million. Each fund represents a unique charitable-giving partnership between an individual, family, or business and designated nonprofit recipients. Since 1990, more than $350 million in grants have been distributed, with approximately 80% remaining in the St. Louis region.
