2020 Asset Funding Opportunity

United Way of Greater St. Louis is pleased to announce we are now accepting grant applications from non-profit organizations to take part in our 2020-2021 ASSET program, which can be delivered online or in-person - following CDC guidelines.


The ASSET program is focused on financial education and asset building for low income families with children. It is designed to promote family financial economic mobility and help address systemic economic and racial disparities. The ASSET program is delivered in partnership with United Way and United Way volunteer financial coaches and is made possible through a generous donation from Stifel Bank & Trust.


To apply, agencies must be nonprofit organizations that serve low-income families with children at a social service agency, Head Start, and/or non-profit childcare center, in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Jefferson County or St. Charles County.


Successful organization applicants will receive a program grant of up to $5000. The grant is intended to fund staff and program supports to help clients overcome obstacles to participation (technology, education incentives, or for those providing in-person classes - a light dinner and/or snacks, transportation and childcare).


Agencies interested in applying for funds must complete the application online or email the application along with all required attachments to Ingrid.deetz@stl.unitedway.org by August 14th, 2020 at 5:00 pm. Late and incomplete applications will not be considered.


An information session for this grant will be held on July 30th from 1:00-2:30 pm via Zoom. Please register by completing this form.


Agencies will be notified by August 21, 2020 of funding decisions. For questions, please contact Ingrid Deetz at ingrid.deetz@stl.unitedway.org or 314-539-4157.
