The Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund Response to Ongoing Racism and Injustice

As an organization, we will use our voice to help drive change and support the path to healing. The crisis of systemic racism in our country is something that demands action and attention from all of us. It is our responsibility as philanthropists to work to end systemic racism. The Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund stands in solidarity, actively affirming that Black lives always have and always will matter.

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.
