Welcome

The Power of Women is the Heartbeat of Change.

In 2007, St. Louis joined the ranks of other cities offering a network for those interested in women’s issues and funding them. The Women’s Foundation of Greater Saint Louis welcomes the support of anyone committed to changing the societal landscape for women and girls. It is committed to strategic funding practices built on community dialogue, extensive research and prioritization of community need. At the heart of the Foundation is its commitment to women and girls. Research has shown that empowering women strengthens communities. Investing in the potential of change led by women will impact our region, our nation and our world.

Through the leadership of the Women’s Funding Network, women’s foundations have gained national momentum over the past two decades. As women have empowered themselves, their capacity to help others deepens. As a result, the model of women helping and funding women has developed strong roots in major metropolitan areas and in smaller communities throughout the nation. Join with us in this important work.
