The Whitaker Foundation
The Foundation makes grants in support of the arts and urban parks in the St. Louis, Mo., metropolitan area. Funding for the Foundation came from the St. Louis-based McKinney Bakery Company later purchased by the General Baking Company. Preference in arts grants is given to organizations that have the arts as their primary mission, are professional companies, provide a live audience experience, and are excellent in the execution of their work. Preference in park grantmaking is given to parks in St. Louis City. The Foundation does not fund playgrounds, community gardens, or environmental programs. Successful applicants for grants have 100 percent board giving. The deadline is for letters of inquiry. Some additional information can be found on the Web site.
