Deaconess Foundation, Forward Through Ferguson and Missouri Foundation for Health have collaborated to establish the St. Louis Regional Racial Healing Fund to invest in healing community trauma and changing the conditions that reinforce systemic racism. With a matching grant from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and a growing pool of participating organizations, $1.4 million has already been committed to the effort. 

GCG Members participating in the pooled fund include Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis, St. Louis Community Foundation, and YouthBridge Community Foundation.
