A Simple Idea
The Spirit of St. Louis Women's Fund (SOS 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.
DISCOVERING OUR COMMUNITY
For the Sake of All
And Why It Matters to Everybody
Health is fundamental to human well-being, but it is not equally
distributed across our community. Life expectancy in Wildwood is 91.4
years; in Kinloch it’s 55.9 years. This kind of disparity takes its toll
on our entire region, morally and economically.
For The Sake of All is a multi-disciplinary project on the
health and well-being of African Americans in St. Louis conducted by
scholars from Washington University and Saint Louis University under
Principal Investigator Jason Purnell.
Event chairs Leslie Corey and Riffi O'Brien invite you to join
program facilatator Rebeccah Bennett from Emerging Wisdom, LLC as we
learn more and share information.
This event is open to SOS members & their guests, past &
present SOS grantees, SOS Advisory Council, Maryville Women’s Leadership
Council, University Staff and students.
