Who We Are

Since 1970, Philanthropy Missouri (formerly known as Gateway Center for Giving) has helped donors to learn, connect, and act with impact. Our Members include corporations, family foundations, donor-advised funds, private foundations, tax-supported foundations, trusts, and professional advisors who are actively involved in the philanthropic sector.

Philanthropy Missouri is one of many philanthropy-serving regional associations across the country that connect grantmakers within a specific geographic location in order to foster alignment and collaboration.

Philanthropy Missouri is an active member of the United Philanthropy Forum, the largest network of philanthropy-serving organizations in the nation. If you aren't located in Missouri, you can access the Regional Association Locator to find the association serving your community.

Vision: We envision a thriving and equitable Missouri, served by a collaborative, purpose-driven, and effective philanthropic sector.

Mission: To equip, connect, and energize our members and partners for thoughtful action and greater impact.
