Great Rivers Greenway Foundation

Enhancing and enriching the mission of Great Rivers Greenway

Great Rivers Greenway is dedicated to delivering on the citizen-driven vision for the St. Louis region. The staff works every day toward the mission to connect the St. Louis region with greenways so people can explore their rivers, parks and communities, making it a vibrant place to live, work, and play.

Through this work, Great Rivers Greenway strives to build a vibrant legacy for future generations. As the network continues to expand, demand is higher than ever – people are excited for the greenways to come to their community. The sales tax is an incredible investment by the taxpayers, but it simply will not be enough to execute every single project. The Great Rivers Greenway Foundation was created as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with the sole purpose of supporting Great Rivers Greenway’s projects while building a community of people to support and enjoy the greenways.

Mission: The Great Rivers Greenway Foundation is committed to enhancing and enriching the mission of Great Rivers Greenway and the vision of the River Ring.

Great Rivers Greenway continues to pursue its vision, and the Foundation can help by creating a supportive community that provides financial support, raises awareness and builds a community of ambassadors. The Foundation will seek and accept alternative funding for projects through donations, grants and events in the areas of capital greenway projects, community engagement programs and conservation.
