Who We Are

STL 50/50 is a giving program powered by Givable that supports charities right here in the St. Louis region. Givable is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in St. Louis that focuses on creating an engaged and informed community of lifelong givers. We empower individuals, families, and businesses to weave a giving rhythm into their lifestyle that positively impacts local nonprofits.

Since its founding by Cultivation Capital, the Regional Business Council of St. Louis, and the Staenberg Family Foundation in 2017, Givable has facilitated over $190,000 in donations to local charities through our programs with the average donation being 50¢. We strive to provide ways for people to give whatever they can, whenever they can.

How It Works

The STL 50/50 raffle works similarly to other 50/50 or “split the pot” raffles you may have done before. 50% of the gross sales go to the person with the winning ticket number and the remaining 50% goes to local charities.

STL 50/50 is powered by the amazing team of givers at Givable. Each one of them is focused on finding ways to engage more people in giving locally because we give where we live.
