As part of the Development Team, the Sr. Manager of Donor Relations will play a critical role in furthering the mission of The Little Bit Foundation to make St. Louis a better place to live, work, and play.

The Organization: The Little Bit Foundation was founded in 2001 and is dedicated to breaking down barriers to learning for under-resourced students in the St. Louis area by providing for their basic needs, along with full wraparound services and academic support.

The results are positive personal growth and increased self-esteem in students impacted by poverty, with the ultimate goal of helping students be successful in the classroom to reach their full potential.
