Partners for Our Future: 125th Endowment Campaign

Inspired by our Jewish values, the National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis has been improving the lives of women, children, and families for over 125 years. One hundred years ago starting a milk program in the St. Louis Public Schools was vital to meet the needs of children; today, we are still challenged with children’s issues but also so much more: racial justice, domestic violence, human trafficking, anti-Semitic vitriol, loss of personal choice, gun violence, and separating families at the border.

NCJWSTL has pioneered the founding of many community programs, many of which now exist as independent non-profit organizations.

It’s critical that NCJWSTL be around and strong for another 125 years. Our work has never been more urgent and current issues make our mission even more relevant. We have become a respected voice in the community, participating in and leading change.

Partners for Our Future is our campaign, in honor of marking our 125th anniversary, to create an Endowment to ensure and expand NCJWSTL’s financial capacity to sustain our work into the future. This Endowment Campaign will ensure that our legacy will continue far into the future.

We want to especially thank and recognize our generous donors who have already participated by making a commitment to the Partners for Our Future campaign:
