Marillac (pronounced Mary-yac) Mission Fund, formerly the Daughters of Charity Foundation of St. Louis, is in its 25th year of investing in area nonprofits serving the materially poor and vulnerable. We strive to provide assistance and work with those who likewise desire to embrace the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.
Since its inception, the Fund has focused on primary and preventive health care and social services. We serve the metropolitan area of St. Louis including 16 counties in Missouri and Illinois, and have funded more than $40 million in grants.
We periodically conduct environmental scans and literature reviews to identify critical issues in the region, and the Grant Award Committee reviews the focus areas for Responsive Grants.
