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.
