William S. Anheuser Charitable Fund Grant Guidelines

The William S. Anheuser Charitable Fund, a Donor-Advised Fund of YouthBridge Community Foundation, follows the guiding principle to Enrich, Enlighten, Encourage and Educate a few to Enable them to Pay It Forward.

Upon recommendation of the Fund Advisors, YouthBridge provides grants in the following areas:

Children, Youth and Their Families; Women

In the United States we focus on organizations, projects, or programs that:

  • Empower the working poor and single working mothers
  • Ensure basic needs for the poor
  • Support Native Americans
  • Provide education or job training

Outside of the United States we focus on organizations, projects, or programs that:

  • Empower the disadvantaged economically
  • Ensure basic needs for those living in extreme poverty
  • Fight human rights abuses

Animal Care

We fund organizations, projects, or programs supporting animals that provide comfort to people.

The Fund grants primarily to organizations based in Missouri or Arizona. To continue Mr. Anheuser’s tradition of mostly giving to smaller, nimble organizations, the Fund prefers to support small and mid-size organizations.

While we accept grant applications by invitation only, we welcome inquiries.
