Who is Invest STL?

Invest STL is a movement of long time residents, newcomers, business owners, and young professionals. We are you. We are St. Louisans who stopped wishing and started investing in the St. Louis we need – a St. Louis with strong neighborhoods.


We were founded in 2012 by a group of creative problem-solvers who had a passion for a more livable region. We are driven by three simple beliefs:

1. Neighborhoods matter to your quality of life.

2. We CAN make our neighborhoods stronger, healthier and more vibrant.

3. We will accomplish most when we invest together.

We invite you to join us through a mutual grant-making model. You contribute to a neighborhood-focused grant by attending events and donating to the fund. You also select the grant winner. Everyone who contributed at least $10 has a vote.

To join our mission - attend an event, contribute to the fund, buy a t-shirt or other merchandise, vote for the winner, and build an endowment. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
