Who We Are
The Little Bit Foundation is an army of supporters giving, serving and advocating for impoverished children in St. Louis. Our philosophy: when you remove the barriers to learning, you give a child hope for the future and empower them to reach their dreams. Through partnerships with area schools, where we serve as the convener of programs that provide for students' essential needs, we are committed to having a positive impact on each student’s personal growth and self-esteem. We have impacted more than 37,000 students in St. Louis city and North County with this mission since our journey began in 2001.
Going where the need is the greatest; working one-on-one with each child; delivering programs that help students stand taller, smile brighter and achieve their goals…this is what Little Bit is about. Yes, the need is great, but the passion of our staff, volunteers and friends is greater.
The smiles, the laughter and the reassurance that what we are doing is helping students walk into the classroom with more confidence and ready to learn is a joy we are happy to share with each of our school partners.
What We Do
Our model is one of a kind. In every school, Little Bit serves as the convener of programs and services that support district and school performance goals and address the needs of the whole child – body, mind and spirit – so that they can focus on their education. We do this by marshaling resources and specialized providers when necessary, and working one-on-one with each child to support his or her comfort, dignity and self-esteem; health and wellness; and academic enrichment.
