Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) is soliciting proposals from qualified contractors proficient in event planning and logistics. This Request for Contracted Service Proposals (RFP) will support event planning for a convening focused on addressing a critical issue—the prevention of suicides among Black youth, with a specific emphasis on those associated with firearms. MFH anticipates that the convening will be held in late 2024 or early 2025 in-person at a location in mid-Missouri or St. Louis.

Their responsibilities will encompass vital tasks such as coordinating logistics, managing event timelines, and ensuring the smooth operation of all event organization facets. The success of the convening will hinge on the contractor’s adept coordination and logistical support, underscoring the importance of their role in achieving the event’s objectives.
