The Saigh Foundation welcomes applications for funding from St. Louis-area organizations benefiting children and youth in the areas of education and health care. The Saigh Foundation is excited to announce that we are now using the new Missouri Common Grant Application Short Form (CGA) for all grant requests.

We are excited to join the community of grantmakers who use the CGA. It incorporates current best practices in nonprofit management, and it was designed through a thoughtful, comprehensive, and inclusive process that included both grantmakers and nonprofit organizations. We believe it provides an opportunity for you to highlight and share the important information about your organization with us.

Submit proposals by the following dates to be considered for each granting cycle.

  Deadline for Trustee Review in
  October 15th January
  January 15th April
  April 15th July
