How can St. Louis propel itself forward and bring people together around supporting two pillars that make anyplace that's anywhere great -- non-profits and the local business community? That is the question local entrepreneurs and community developers Rick Ruderer and Michael Powers set out to answer, ultimately leading to the development of the PropelSTL platform.

Propel STLis a resource for the "doers" in our region to both support beloved local businesses that create the majority of jobs in our community and add immeasurably to its local flavor and identity and to also support the non-profit, mission-driven entities that make St. Louis a better place to live and do business!

Our non-profit partners include Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri, Stray Rescue, Habitat for Humanity, Urban Future, Mind's Eye, Art St. Louis, The Endangered Wolf Center...all beacons of hope and progress in their respective fields. Our business partners, too numerous to list, can be found on "Best Of" lists year after year!

With your help, together we can propel St. Louis forward.
