The Spirit of Giving
The Spirit of St. Louis Women's Fund is a collective giving and grantmaking organization. Everyone gives an equal amount of money. Everyone has an equal voice.
We are a volunteer democracy. Those who have time, give it. Those who don't are not judged. We respect that different women have different demands on their time at different times in their lives. There are no fundraisers, no galas.
We have only two requirements: pay your dues and vote on how it's given back to the community. Click here to become a member.
SPIRIT AWARDS 2017
This is the day of the year when it all comes together - our giving, our grant-making and the spirit we share as members of SOS and members of this community where we all live and grow.
It's also your chance to meet each of our 2017 grantees in person and hear firsthand the powerful work they are doing to make a difference in our region.
Our grantees always tell members of the Spirit of St. Louis Women's Fund that our grant celebration is a truly unique event for them. They get to know us and we get to know them! SOS members are encouraged to bring guests, friends and family, to this wonderful event celebrating our grantees and the work they do for the St. Louis community.
Mark your calendars now for Wednesday, May 24 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Lodge at Des Peres (a new location for our awards this year). Register here.
