Your support is key to ensuring STEP responds to the full basic needs of our neighbors. The Fall Matching Campaign is the primary way STEP asks supporters to join us to empower lives and restore hope. Join others in this challenge to provide STEP the resources to fulfill our mission.

Your gift will be matched.
 Between now and Give to the Max Day on November 15, any financial donation will be matched via a $50,000 challenge fund. Generous donors, including the St. Louis Park Youth and Community Development Fund, STEP’s Board of Directors, Westwood Lutheran Church, and other faith community partners, are challenging the community to step forward and do its part.

Every dollar you give between now and November 15 will be matched up to the $50,000.


Financial struggle is often invisible. Thousands of children and adults rely on STEP every year to avoid hunger and stabilize their lives. The majority of our financial resources come directly from the community. (Less than 5% of STEP’s budget comes from state or federal sources.)

When we join together, we can accomplish great things.
