Anheuser-Busch Remains A Vital Community Partner

This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, Inc. serving our community. It is our distinct mission to empower African Americans and others in need throughout the region in securing economic self-reliance, social equality and civil rights. Since our founding, Anheuser-Busch has been a steadfast supporter of the Urban League movement both locally and nationally. Over the years, AB has contributed to many of the St. Louis Urban League’s programs including scholarships, health literacy, early childhood education and employment.

In 2007 and 2017, Anheuser-Busch was a major corporate supporter of the National Urban League Convention in St. Louis that went on record as being one the most successful National Conferences in our organization’s history. Following the merger of Anheuser-Busch and InBev, AB continued its support of the St. Louis Urban League with the donation of the Community Health Mobile Unit, which continues to provide vital free health screenings for thousands of people living in the St. Louis region today.

During the civil unrest in Ferguson of 2014, Anheuser-Busch officials contacted the Urban League to ask how they could help. As a result, AB became a founding sponsor of the Urban League Save Our Sons (SOS) program which has helped hundreds of African American and other men find jobs in this area. AB employees also participate in clothing drives, serve as motivational speakers for SOS participants and distribute backpacks filled with needed essentials for the homeless of our community.

Anheuser-Busch maintains its national headquarters in the City of St. Louis employing thousands of people in our region. We are tremendously grateful for the support that AB gives to the Urban League and other charitable causes in the greater St. Louis community each year.
