#241: Youthbridge Community Foundation

  • The Youthbridge Foundation goes all the way back to 1877.
  • It was called at that time, the German General Protestant Orphan's Home.
  • The non-profit charitable group focuses mainly on 1)nonprofit sustainability, 2) transfer of wealth, 3) community support, and 4) leadership
  • In 2005, it partnered with Washington University. Together, they started and funded Havenhouse, which is located at Youthbridge.
  • In 2013, Youthbridge provided more than $1,000,000 to St. Louis youth/children's charities.

This was one of the (If I remember correctly) last 3 cakes put out. The cake, which was decorated by multi-cake artist Rich Brooks in front of a live audience at the Soulard Arts Center. This one has handprints from many fellow cake hunters:
