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.
