Who We Help

Focused on St. Louis Area Youth

The Buddy Fund proudly supports at-risk youth throughout St. Louis by providing sports equipment to 75+ organizations a year in low-income neighborhoods. The Buddy Fund facilitates granting these organizations with equipment and supplies with the goal to have a positive effect on the lives of at-risk youth.
