Grants to Missouri and Illinois organizations in eligible locations to improve the quality of life for children and families. Funding is intended for organizations that invest in systemic change to address gaps that inhibit positive outcomes for residents. Organizations should work in the St. Louis metropolitan region, which includes the city of St. Louis, the Counties of St. Louis, St. Charles, Jefferson, and Franklin Counties in Missouri, and Madison, St. Clair, and Monroe Counties in Illinois.

Deaconess Foundation recognizes that significant gaps in civic infrastructure, resources and power inhibit the health and well-being of children and families in the St. Louis region. The Just for Kids strategy is designed to address these gaps by strengthening the region, system, and community’s capability to achieve positive outcomes through collaborative engagement and investment with diverse partners. 

Responsive Grants will support positive systemic change for the well-being of children and families in the St. Louis metropolitan region.

  • Funding will support policy development, advocacy or organizing efforts that pursue positive systemic change for the well-being of children and families in the St. Louis metropolitan region in alignment with Deaconess policy priorities.
  • Grants are awarded to direct service providers that work to amplify the voices of their constituencies but will not be awarded to applicants requesting funds for programs or direct services.
  • Both emerging and established efforts at all stages of work are encouraged to apply.

Competitive applicants will utilize a racial equity lens and pursue efforts that: research, develop and test new policy ideas, protect or implement effective policies, advance public education, debate and will, equip and position advocates and organizers, strengthen networks and alliances, or help policymakers understand how policies are working or when they need innovation.
