June 2020 Impact Report

Good afternoon,

The Givable community is nothing short of amazing, and we are so proud of our members for stepping up to donate during these difficult and uncertain times. Now more than ever, our St. Louis nonprofits are relying on the generosity of people in our city, and we did not disappoint. In June, our Givable members came together and raised a total of $5,398 for local nonprofits! We truly appreciate your dedication to creating a stronger, happier, and healthier community. 

Nonprofit Connection—Virtual Edition

Our Virtual Nonprofit Connection was a success! The livestream presentation from Tyler Mathews, Executive Director of Venture Café St. Louis, was outstanding. He presented best practices for taking your events and programming virtual, and our community raised some great questions. If you missed it, you can still view the video our Facebook page.

GET YOUR STL 50/50 TICKETS

In June, we began beta testing a new giving program called STL 50/50—and yes, that’s a raffle reference. Our intention is to hold 1 raffle per month with 50% of total sales being awarded to the person with the winning ticket and 50% given to charities improving our region. We believe it will be a win-win for the St. Louis region! While we are beta testing, we are actively featuring and raising funds for A Red Circle on the platform. 

Learn more about STL 50/50 and get your tickets at stl5050.com. We'd also love to hear your thoughts on the program as we prepare to launch it in a big way after the beta testing period later this year—share feedback with Jared@givable.org!
