Join the Grow Challenge!

Help the Young Friends meet their goal of $50,000 to continue our mission to feed the world, heal the planet, and grow St. Louis as a world center for plant science.

At the Danforth Center, we are working to find long term, sustainable solutions to critical issues like hunger, malnutrition, and climate change. By donating to the Center as part of the Grow Challenge, you can help us continue our mission to improve the human condition through plant science.

Your donation will:

  • support research projects aimed at eliminating hunger and preserving the environment.
  • help us provide STEAM educational opportunities for children across St. Louis and beyond.
  • strengthen the economic future of our region.

All donations to the Grow Challenge will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 while funds last.*

We hope you will consider donating to the Center today.

Join us as we build a brighter future.
