About The Saigh Foundation

The Saigh (pronounced “sigh”) Foundation continues the legacy of Fred Saigh, a St. Louis lawyer, businessman, real estate investor and owner of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.  Established in 2000, the foundation works to enhance the quality of life for children and youth in the St. Louis metropolitan area by supporting educational and health-related charitable institutions and organizations.

The foundation is especially interested in stimulating the development of new ventures and supporting organizations that feature innovative approaches or programs. Like Mr. Saigh, the foundation is particularly dedicated to aiding those who might not otherwise receive assistance.
