The Community Builders Network of Metro St. Louis (CBN) is an association of nonprofit community building organizations (CBOs) and associate members comprised of lenders, philanthropy, nonprofits, and government actors working to build vibrant neighborhoods where people of different incomes, races, and walks of life can access the opportunities and resources necessary for a good life. We believe that strong neighborhoods help to build a stronger and more competitive regional economy. CBN works towards these goals by:

  • increasing the capacity of member organizations
  • developing a more supportive community building system
  • raising public awareness of the need and importance for community building

Is your organization interested in becoming a member of CBN? If you are a community building nonprofit organization, you must turn in the Community Building Nonprofit Membership Application and a board-signed members pledge. Members developed this pledge to indicate their commitment to an exemplary level of practice and conduct.

If your organization is not a Community  Building  Nonprofit,  but  you would still like to support the mission and activities of CBN, you may join as an Associate Member by turning in the Associate Membership Application. You do not need to sign the pledge.
