Together ... our giving ... can powerfully move .... St. Louis forward

A Simple Idea

Women coming together to give money away. A simple idea offering a fresh perspective: a collective giving network where individual resources are pooled to expand women's philanthropy and strengthen the St. Louis region. Embraced with phenomenal response from the onset, SOS has grown, welcoming all women who wish to join.


The Spirit of St. Louis Women's Fund (SOS) strengthens the St. Louis community through informed, focused grantmaking by educating and inspiring women to engage in significant giving.


- Create a powerful organization of women devoted to improving the community.

- Be a force for significant social change through collective grantmaking.

- Provide financial support to community organizations dedicated to improving life in the Greater St.Louis area.

- Educate and inspire current and potential women donors.


Equality, diversity, impact, education,collaboration, leadership and connection.

Join us today!

The invitation to join is open and inclusive. With no restrictions on age, professional status, religious affiliation, political views, race, lifestyle, where you live or volunteer time requirements, the group is diverse and eclectic. Any woman who wishes to join this dynamic group can.


Since its founding in 2006, SOS has given the St. Louis region over $1,400,000 in grants. Way to go SOS members!


This year's site teams are busy right now, with the Ballot Fair and the 2015 Spirit Awards fast approaching.

Mark your calendar for the Ballot Fair, April 8 at The Center of Clayton. Enjoy refreshments, visit with site team members, get details on agencies proposed for the final ballot and vote for your favorites. No RSVP needed. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy your membership privilege as an SOS member and vote for our 2015 grantees.

On May 21, celebrate this year's grantees, catch up with SOS friends and make new ones at our year's highlight event, the Spirit Awards.
This year's keynote speaker is Kimberly Ritter, director of development, The Exchange Initiative, a St. Louis based organization dedicated to ending sex trafficking in the United States. This is a great opportunity to introduce your friends and family to the Spirit of St. Louis Women's Fund.
