Join Our Giving Community

To join our giving community as a recurring donor, please visit this page. Your support allows us to continue radical collaboration and action with organizations, institutions, nonprofits, initiatives, and policymakers to move the region forward toward equitable, generational, systems-level change.

For monthly updates about our systems change work, please subscribe to our newsletter.

Since the sunset of the Ferguson Commission on December 31st, 2015, Forward Through Ferguson has served as the region’s transition and action team keeping the report, its 189 calls to action and a St. Louis vision for Racial Equity from gathering dust. We celebrate our wins while dreaming of and working towards a future where anti-racist systems change is no longer urgent and necessary—because Justice For All, Youth at the Center, and the Opportunity to Thrive are a reality.

In 2023, your support has made it possible for us to:

  • Uplift community power and decision-making by supporting the Community Governance Board of the Racial Healing + Justice Fund as they invested $800,000 in 42 Black and Brown-led initiatives,
  • Work in partnership to strengthen local and national Racial Equity infrastructure by planning conferences like Roots & Remedies 2023, Racial Equity Summit 2023, and supporting coalitions that advance prosecutor accountability and honest elections,
  • Release the full #Transforming911 advocacy and accountability tool, amplified stories and engaged most-impacted residents,
  • And finalize a new strategic plan to strengthen organizational infrastructure and hire 5 new staff members to increase organizational capacity.
As we near the end of 2023, will you please consider making a gift of any amount to support the advancement of Racial Equity in our region? Your support is critical as we plan and implement initiatives to improve outcomes for everyone in our community. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
