The Dave and Barbara Mungenast Foundation was created in 1996 to fulfill Dave and Barb's desire of sharing their success with the community and environment. Through their businesses, real estate developments and raising a family, Dave and Barb experienced the great fortune of living in the United States of America. Traveling and conducting business abroad showed them that opportunity in the U.S. is unparalleled. Both felt a deep sense of community and wanted to give back to the people who helped make them successful.
For these reasons, Dave and Barbara sought to invest in the future of America by funding youth developmental programs; protecting the environment, which provides our most basic needs of clean air, food and water; and developing new, entrepreneurial businesses to create jobs and provide a higher standard of living.
The Mungenast Automotive Family continues to be the most ardent financial supporter of the Foundation, and ensures that Dave and Barb's wishes continue to be funded. Each year, a portion of the Mungenast Automotive Family profits goes to the Dave and Barbara Mungenast Foundation. Recipients of funds from this foundation include the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Boys´ Club of St. Louis, the St. Louis Area Foodbank, St. Anthony´s Hospital, and the Klaaskids Foundation for Children, an organization dedicated to the prevention of child abduction. Barbara Mungenast continues this tradition along with her three sons: David Jr., Ray, and Kurt.View the 990PF form for the David & Barbara Mungenast Foundation.
