History

St. Louis Chapter Inception

Planning for the Chapter began in May 2008 with an ad hoc organizing committee that met throughout the summer. The official charter organizing meeting was held on September 25, 2008 with a standing room only crowd at the Nonprofit Services Consortium. 

Our first program meeting was held that November, in larger facilities at Central Reform Congregation (CRC), located at 5020 Waterman in the Central West End.

The Chapter moved its meetings to the Network for Strong Communities Center, on the corner of Brentwood and Manchester Boulevards in St. Louis in 2016. The Chapter welcomes all St. Louis area grant professionals, click here to become a GPA National and Chapter member!
