A United Way for St. Louis

ASAP FUNDER SPOTLIGHT: United Way of Greater St. Louis' theme of "Helping People" is an understatement when looking at the impact the organization has on the region.

United Way brings the area together to help raise funding to support health and human services for 16 counties, which includes annual support for its member agencies that provide quality services to everyone from the elderly to children. With the community's support, over $67 million was raised in 2009 to support services and initiatives throughout Missouri and Illinois.


To achieve this, United Way has worked closely with ARCHS and other area organizations over the years to collaborate on important regional issues.

A Civic Investment in St. Louis' Education

ASAP FUNDER SPOTLIGHT: Civic Progress is a quiet presence in St. Louis. But its actions have been making big statements, and delivering big results, since 1953.

Civic Progress has been a top influential organization in the St. Louis area for decades, and has a strong commitment to improve the region through projects related to infrastructure, healthcare, safety and other big ticket items. However, Civic Progress understands that supporting education lays an important foundation for the entire community.

To enhance education for the St. Louis region, Civic Progress has provided $200,000 in funding for the After School for All Partnership for St. Louis (ASAP) during the past four years to help increase access to after school services that benefit youth, families and the community.
