Organizational Summary

The Community Impact Network (“Network”) is a private operating foundation that builds equity by serving those who create opportunities for people in the 24:1 community to learn, live, and leave a legacy. The 24:1 community includes the people who live in the municipalities and sections of unincorporated north St. Louis County that make up the Normandy Schools Collaborative school district.

The Network has about seventy-five member organizations who collectively serve the 24:1 community in the Network’s three priority areas: (1) Network members create opportunities for people to access quality education throughout their life (“Learning”); (2) Network members create opportunities for people to be safe and healthy, get a job, move through the housing continuum, and experience economic mobility (“Living”); and (3) Network members create opportunities for people to leave a positive legacy for future generations (“Legacy”).

The Network’s staff serve in three main ways: (1) by listening to community stakeholders to inform how the Network does its work and to identify community needs, goals, and dreams (“Engaging”); (2) by working with service providers to address community needs, improve services, craft solutions to challenges, align around shared objectives, and build connections between community members and those who serve them (“Collaborating”); and (3) providing a suite of supportive services, including financial, strategic, and organizational resources, to service providers working in the Network’s priority areas (“Investing”).

The Network has an annual budget of about $15 million and roughly 15 full-time employees.
