The Little Bit Foundation

The Little Bit Foundation works to eliminate barriers to learning by addressing the basic needs of under-resourced students living in the St. Louis region. In area schools, Little Bit brings partnerships and programs that align with district and school performance goals and provide for the needs of the whole child. Working one-on-one with students, we support personal care, classroom readiness, literacy, and health and wellness.

The Little Bit Foundation is about empowering students to achieve their academic goals and dreams for the future and uplifting them with words of encouragement and the knowledge that someone cares and believes in them. Through a small team of 36 employees, two consultants and a large volunteer base contributing over 16,000 volunteer hours each year, The Little Bit Foundation is currently serving 14,000 students in 47 area schools.
