Beginning in 2022, Deaconess Foundation will use Blackbaud Grantmaking (BBGM) to accept proposals for grants. To introduce our partners and prospective partners to this new system, we have produced both a written and video guide walking through accessing and using the system.

Funding Opportunities

Deaconess supports policy development, advocacy or organizing efforts that pursue positive systemic change for the well-being of children and families in the St. Louis metropolitan region in alignment with Deaconess policy priorities. We expect efforts supported through these grants to pursue the result of policy shifts aligned with Deaconess Foundation’s policy priorities: Health Care, Economic Mobility, Justice & Equity, and Early Childhood Education. 

Learn more about our policy priorities.

Applications for 2022 are now closed. Funding opportunities for 2023 will be announced soon, including our Policy Campaign Grant which opens at the end of January.
