United Together We Can Make a Difference

Together with you, we continue to make a positive impact in the lives of at-risk underserved youth through the Youth Organizations in the St Louis Region that we support. We have great news to share with you about the impact you have made!

This past year, because you chose to continue to give, your donation gave significant hope to over 86,000 at-risk underserved kids within in 150 (this is an increase of 64 new) nonprofit Youth Organizations, Schools, Foster and Group Homes. Thanks to you, we were able to provide over $215,000.00 of new sports and recreation equipment to help them to be active and healthy. As you know, there is nothing healthier and more healing as kids involved in physical sports and recreation activities. For 61 years, the Buddy Fund has partnered with the St. Louis Community. There will always be a great need for what we do and by uniting together, we are very hopeful for a much better future for the youth.

We would greatly appreciate your support with our Annual Giving Campaign “United Together”, to help the underserved at-risk youth in our community. Is it possible for you to support us with a special gift? Our goal is to raise $20,000 that will help us meet the needs of the 150+ Youth Organizations that need our support this year.
