What will Saint Louis do in a day?

GiveSTLDay is a big, bold opportunity for our community. A partnership between the Greater Saint Louis Community Foundation and local nonprofits. Hundreds (if not thousands) of donors from every neighborhood in our community will come together on a single day to raise significant funds for local non-profits, including Union Avenue Opera.

This incredible fun, community-wide day of giving is in its third year and has become and extremely important day of giving for Union Avenue Opera as well as the entire St. Louis non-profit/philanthropic community.

Everyone can be a philanthropist. We’re asking every person in the community to get behind this effort. Large and small gifts will combine for big impact.

The first year – 2014 – Union Avenue Opera raised $3,748, and in 2015 the total was $7,015. This year’s goal is $10,000 and with your help we can reach it!

Visit GiveSTLDay.org on May 3, 2016 between 12:00am and 11:59pm and donate to the nonprofits working on the causes you care about. There will be prizes and incentives awarded throughout the day to help make your donation dollars go even further. Let’s see what we can do in one day!
