Women’s Auxiliary Foundation

Women’s Auxiliary Foundation for Jewish Aged is a foundation of Jewish Federation of St. Louis that is focused on providing financial support for programs and organizations that ensure the dignity and honor of the Jewish elderly in the community at large. Women’s Auxiliary Foundation has a rich history in the St. Louis Jewish community and has evolved to become a significant source of support for the Jewish aged. After much consideration, Jewish Federation and Women’s Auxiliary Foundation created a partnership to leverage the expertise, resources and leadership of both organizations to best meet the needs of the Jewish elderly community in St. Louis.

In concert with Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ Strategic Priorities to build a human services safety net to identify, monitor and care for the most vulnerable and isolated Jews, the Women’s Auxiliary Foundation for Jewish Aged is committed to funding organizations and programs that work toward these priorities. At this time, there are no limiting guidelines. We want and encourage creativity but ask that you are professional employed by a St. Louis non-profit working in conjunction with the Jewish community. Once applications are submitted, we may contact you with questions or request additional information.
