The Mary Ryder Society, which debuted at our Mary Ryder Home 2017 Jubilee, is a special giving program designed to give recognition to our generous supporters. Members of the Mary Ryder Society give annual donations totaling $1,200 or greater.

The Mary Ryder Society offers our donors the opportunity to be part of something larger. Mary Ryder Society members are ambassadors of philanthropic giving and are part of a very special group within the Mary Ryder Home community . They are like-minded individuals who are compassionate and concerned about senior women, mental health and wellness issues; openhearted and generous; and are respected leaders in our St. Louis community.

Members of the Mary Ryder Society receive special benefits such as:

  • Recognition as a member of this elite giving group.
  • An invitation to the annual Society Social, where you can mingle, network, and show united support for our ladies at Mary Ryder Home.
  • The Society Times, a semi-annual newsletter, will keep members up to date on upcoming Mary Ryder Home fundraising events, in Home activities and programs, volunteer opportunities and facility improvement projects. The Society Times will also keep members appraised of current senior women issues in our society today, and may introduce you (our supporter) to some of the wonderful women of the Mary Ryder Home.

Mary Ryder Home’s Annual Funds are unrestricted and used for medical care, therapeutic programs, educational resources, resident assistance programs, and facility improvements. With each contribution the ladies of Mary Ryder Home are empowered with a higher quality of life. 

To give now, please click the “Donate Now” button located in top right corner.

Unrestricted, philanthropic gifts received throughout the year are utilized wherever the Home most needs the funds. In addition to openhearted giving at any time of the year, Mary Ryder Home is part of a few special Giving-Programs:

  • #Give STL Day: happening once a year in May, this 24-hour give day is all about giving to local charities. 
  • #Giving Tuesday: is the Tuesday following Thanksgiving Day. Happening in the middle of a season of gift buying season, it is the perfect way to start the season of giving.
  • Go Fund Me: Mary Ryder Home is raising funds for a new, industrial grade dishwasher and steamer. Visit to be part of our fundraiser by giving or by sharing our cause with others.
