Women’s Auxiliary Foundation for Jewish Aged, a Supporting Foundation of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, was established in 2014 through a generous commitment from the Women’s Auxiliary for the Jewish Aged. The Foundation is focused on providing financial support to St. Louis area 501(c)(3) organizations through grants and challenge grants for programs that ensure the dignity and honor of the Jewish elderly in the St. Louis community.

In concert with one of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ core commitments to “secure the well-being and safety of individuals within the Jewish community” and its high strategic priority of serving “elderly Jews at risk,” the Women’s Auxiliary Foundation for Jewish Aged is committed to our mission to fund organizations and programs that work toward this priority.

At this time, there are no limiting guidelines. We want and encourage creativity but ask that your request have a mission and priority of Jewish elderly in the community at large.

Applications will be accepted from a 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.
