Give STL Day is a 24-hour giving event that helps our local nonprofits and thus the whole community. Imagine the impact we can have when our St. Louis region comes together to give on MAY 3rd!   Out of 40 community foundations nationwide that operate these one-day campaigns, our St. Louis foundation was 9th in total dollars raised and 5th in total number of gifts.  It gives you a feeling of pride to know our area is so generous! 


Our Spirit of Provident Annual Gala finally happened after many months of planning and work.  Many thanks to our planning committee and in particular, two of our very dedicated Board members—Barb Abbett and Denise Bentele, along with our Executive Director, Steve Sullivan, Sherry Gerke, Julie McDowell and Maggie Bauer. Also key was our team of volunteers that night. 

The positive energy was palpable!  Loved the ambiance at the Four Seasons and the program was substantive with colorful content and skill from our MC, Dan Gray, and our ED, Steve Sullivan along with our new Board Chair, Larry Thomas.  Risa Zwerling and Mark Wrighton were the inaugural recipients of our Spirit of Provident award for their dedication to improving the quality of life in our region.  And, Charlie Box received the Jackie Kaiser Volunteer Award for his 21 years of service to the crisis hotline.

Hearing Kevin Hines' story in person was truly amazing.  He is awe-inspiring, sharing his mental health journey, a champion for survival and recovery!
