What is The Butterfly Project?

Gateway Metro Federal Credit Union proudly works on a year-round community service project called The Butterfly Project. It is run by a group of employees who are dedicated to giving back to their community. The name pays homage to the Butterfly Effect Theory, which states something as small as butterflies have the power to create something much larger than itself. Our project’s motto “No act too small” serves as a reminder that even a small act can grow beyond measure. If you would like to learn more about The Butterfly Project please email ButterflyCommittee@gmcu.org or contact us at (314) 621-4575.

What is The Little Bit Foundation?

The Little Bit Foundation believes it starts with the dreams and ambitions, the character and education of every child. Their purpose is to help remove the barriers to learning while building up students’ confidence, dignity and all the other qualities that lead to success. It’s about educational equity – and filling the gaps with respect and kindness – and it begins with each of us.

At Little Bit, they hold no political affiliations or leanings, nor do they participate in policy advocacy. Their focus and strength is in serving their most under-resourced school communities, supporting students’ individual needs and goals, and celebrating their successes. Little Bit welcomes every person to join us in this journey.
