About Us

The first project undertaken by MCBE was to provide funding for a study by the PFM Group of Philadelphia that looked at the City of Saint Louis revenue structure. In 2010 and 2011, MCBE sponsored two more PFM studies. One reviewed a list of alternatives to the City of Saint Louis earnings tax, while the other look at areas where the city and Saint Louis County could cooperate to help create more efficient delivery of services. The studies were funded by MCBE, whose sole donor until now has been Rex Sinquefield, a retired investment fund executive and philanthropist.
