Gateway Center for Giving today launched an updated 2020 edition of the St. Louis Regional Collaborations Directory. With 45 cross-sector collaborations listed, it is a useful resource for organizations that are engaged in philanthropic and nonprofit sector initiatives. This free tool is intended to foster knowledge-sharing and provide context as potential partners contemplate opportunities to work together.
Supported by a leadership grant from The Saigh Foundation, the Directory is a catalog of the cross-sector collaborative efforts that connect and serve the St. Louis region. For the first time, the Directory is being offered in two formats: a printed PDF version and an interactive online counterpart, with the added benefit of sortable data. More information on accessing the Directory can be found at www.centerforgiving.org/st-louis-collaborations-directory.
Elke Buckland, Executive Director of The Saigh Foundation, noted, “The Saigh Foundation believes that collaboration is an essential strategy in tackling society’s most pressing problems. The Regional Collaborations Directory offers information that sector stakeholders can use to partner and achieve increased impact.”
“This unique repository highlights the ongoing collaborative work of funders and nonprofits in our region,” Gateway Center for Giving CEO Deborah Dubin added, “and we are grateful for the ability to share this updated and free resource with the community at a time when working together toward aligned goals is more critical than ever.”
The University of Missouri - St. Louis Community Innovation and Action Center (CIAC) contributed data, which was obtained with support from the United Way of Greater St. Louis. Research for the 2020 edition was completed by sector consultant Danielle Wallis.
