The Incarnate Word Foundation believes in a community where the poor and marginalized have the ability to attain quality of life. Through our grant making processes, IWF supports the work of organizations who also believe in this kind of community and are actively working to advance equity and well-being in St. Louis. As we work together to envision and bring forth this reality, we asked grant partners to talk to us about their vision for St. Louis and highlight ways they are working toward this vision.
At the heart of the foundation, we value efforts to advance equity, opportunity, & human dignity. These efforts often address the following topics, though Racial Equity is the overarching, all-encompassing priority for each organization or project we fund.
“Funding neighborhood work fosters systemic change by addressing the root causes of poverty and oppression. It fosters the confidence within individuals to dream while simultaneously creating access to the tools and resources needed to achieve those dreams.” — IWF Executive Summary, 2019
