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.

Girls Night Out

Membership events are a great way to connect with SOS and learn how YOU are making a difference in St. Louis.

The next event, Girls Night Out, is not only a first event for SOS, it also kicks off our February education event studying immigration and its importance to the St. Louis community.

On Monday, October, 13, join m.i.c.a. Project founders Nicole Cortes and Jessica Mayo and SOS grant recipients for a fun evening of food, drink, and door prizes.

Studies show that women are more likely to give in a collaborative way (like SOS!) but the main reason they don't participate is because they aren't asked!

So go ahead and ASK, bring a friend or two or three, and have a Girls Night Out with SOS!.



Since its founding in 2006, SOS has given the St. Louis region over $1,400,000 in grants. Way to go SOS members! We are a national network of collective giving groups.
