What do we mean by “a proud member”? The United Way of Greater St. Louis has supported Grace Hill since 1924. That’s 90+ years of essential funding, guidance and partnership that have allowed us to help our families become stronger, healthier and more self-reliant. The United Way currently dedicates around $700,000 a year to Grace Hill, without which many essential programs that support St. Louis children, families and communities would disappear.
We look forward to working closely with the United Way on long-term, measurable community impact.
United Way of Greater St. Louis began in 1922 as the Community Fund, organized by volunteers to raise money to help operate 40 charities. The United Way provides a cost-effective way of raising and channeling financial resources into community needs. These financial resources are the seed for agencies to secure matching revenue from other sources, sometimes two to three times as much. Without the help of the United Way, millions of dollars would be lost, thereby hindering community wellness.
Over the past few years, United Way has become an even stronger partner, helping leverage their leadership and connections to support our efforts around school partnerships, family resources and the Water Tower Hub. We look forward to the next 90+ years of working closely with the United Way on long-term, measurable community impact.
