What Is Collective Giving?

In collective giving, like-minded people come together to support shared causes.

At the Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund (SOS), we pool our resources, invest as a group and award grants to smaller St. Louis-area non-profits. By investing collectively, we achieve greater impact.

Members benefit through social connectivity, education and the impact of our investments. All women are welcome to participate.

Vote – With “One Member, One Vote”,  our members vote on proposed grants.

Grant – Since 2007, SOS has invested over $2.2 million in urgent and critical needs throughout the St. Louis community.
