LifeWise StL is thrilled to celebrate our 120th anniversary. We’ll mark this milestone throughout the year with special events and giving challenges, and by sharing a few of our big dreams for the next 120 years. Stay tuned!
We’ll also take some time to honor our past. As we welcome this momentous year, I can’t help but reflect upon our beginnings. In 1902, St. Louis shoe manufacturing executive William Sloan founded a settlement house to invest in the people in his community. He and his team served them by providing a safe space for living, education and connection—resources that empowered these women and men to build better futures.
A brighter future for our scholars and families is truly the biggest dream of all. To ensure this mission endures, our emphasis is on a higher quality to realize a bigger impact. Spending on partnership-based programming and professionally trained staff is how we make a difference.
So for this special anniversary, please consider how you can help us increase our impact. Volunteer with us for the first time, help spread the word about our mission and work, or donate 120% more than what you have in the past. We need your help in whatever way works best for you.
Thank you for all you do—past, present and future—for LifeWise.
