Giving Opportunities

In response to the growing demand for HIV/AIDS services in our community Saint Louis Effort for AIDS merged with the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin in September. With this merger comes a brighter future for people confronting HIV/AIDS because it will result in expanded services and a completely new model of care for HIV patients in Missouri.
The first phase of our expansion includes moving to a new location with an on-site medical clinic, complete with its own dedicated HIV pharmacy.
With this HIV Medical Home model we have been able to increase viral suppression among patients from 88 percent to 92 percent in just three years. This is compared to the 86 percent national average of viral suppression among patients retained in HIV care at similar HIV specialty clinics. Your generous support is essential to our ability to ensure this model’s success in St. Louis.

Please give with pride his holiday season! Together we can help people with HIV live a longer, healthy life.

Thank you for supporting Saint Louis Effort for AIDS this holiday season.


You will have the option of making the gift a tribute, in memory or in honor of someone.

Red Ribbon Partnership

Red Ribbon Partners provide gifts of all sizes to EFA to sustain our programs and services.  This reliable, consistent giving is the life blood of our organization, providing an even and sustainable flow of resources, and a convenient opportunity for those who prefer to provide support in regular, predictable amounts. 

Corporate Matching Gifts

Matching Gift programs offered by many corporations will match the employee's charitable gift in a variety of rations.  Volunteer Grants are donations made to the employee's charity of choice based on their volunteer hours. 

"In Memory Of" or Tribute Giving

Many of our donors choose to make a contribution in honor of a special person, occasion or in memory of a loved one.  A special letter is sent to the person you are honoring or the family of the person you wish to remember.  This letter will state your name(s) and the person you are honoring/remembering and that you have made a generous contribution, but not the amount.  You will receive a letter for tax purposes stating the amount of the gift.

Naming Opportunities

In 2008, EFA's office space was completely renovated.  As part of the Renovation Celebration, we offered Naming Opportunities.  Some are still available if you would like to donate and name the space.
