The health, education, and welfare of children were of considerable importance to Dana Brown. Throughout his adult life he sought to alleviate the suffering of disadvantaged youngsters and enhance all children’s opportunities for productive, wholesome, and creative lives. These goals remain a primary focus of The Dana Brown Charitable Trust as we provide grants to organizations who benefit children in the St. Louis Metropolitan region.
St. Louis is a city with a rich history and bright future. Most of Dana Brown’s lifetime philanthropic efforts were centered in his beloved St. Louis. Therefore, we proudly limit The Dana Brown Charitable Trust’s grants to the Greater St. Louis metro area. Together, St. Louis’ nonprofit community and The Dana Brown Charitable Trust are creating a positive and tangible impact on the people, places, and animals around us.
Culture and Zoology
Throughout his lifetime, Dana Brown infamously shared his world-travels with the St. Louis community through broadcast television and Safari Coffee commercials. It was Dana’s belief that exposure to the beauty of nature, other cultures, and wild animals was deeply enriching to the lives of his fellow St. Louisans. The Dana Brown Charitable Trust continues this tradition by providing grants to organizations focused on protecting and promoting the health and welfare of animals in the St. Louis Metropolitan region.
My organization was DECLINED funding last year. When can we reapply?
Starting in 2017, organizations that were declined funding in the previous year may reapply in the following year. However, during calendar year 2017, if you applied for a grant for the March, 2016 Meeting, you will have to wait until the August 15, 2017 cycle. If you applied for a grant for the June, 2016 Meeting you could apply for the August 15, 2017 cycle. For 2018, as there are only two Grant Making Meetings, you simply wait out one meeting and then you can reapply.
