2014 Spirit Awards

Annual Grants Celebration
Thursday, June 12

5:30 - 7:30 pm
KDHX Radio Station

The Spirit of St. Louis Women's Fund is celebrating its 2014 Spirit Awards at the headquarters of KDHX, located
at 3524 Washington Avenue, 63103.
This year's keynote speaker is Erin Budde, executive director of STL250.
Erin will give us insights about what she has learned about the needs of the St. Louis community on a broader perspective. Erin is not only head of the birthday celebration of St. Louis at STL250, but she was the former head of community affairs of Wells Fargo and the former executive director of the Gateway Center for Giving.,

Girls Giving in 2014

SOS is eager to pass the spirit of giving along to younger generations, and a group of
St. Louis-area high school girls have eagerly caught it. Beginning next fall, members of Girls Giving will contribute $100 each and make grants from the combined pool. Like SOS, the group will be a separate component fund of the Greater St. Louis Community Foundation. Members will develop their own guidelines and operate independently, with SOS providing guidance. The group is modeled on the youth initiatives of other women’s collective giving groups. For more information, contact Kathy Frost ( If you have a high-school daughter, granddaughter, niece or friend who might be interested, she can also put you in touch with the group.



Since its founding in 2006, SOS has given the St. Louis region over $1,300,000 in grants. Way to go SOS members!
