About the Foundation
The Saigh (pronounced sigh)
Foundation was created by Fred
M. Saigh to serve as a legacy of the gifts he gave throughout
his lifetime to the community of St. Louis, Missouri. Fred
Saigh was known as an extraordinarily generous man. He touched
the lives of many people he barely knew by sensing their need
for assistance and offering help at critical times in their
lives. He often gave anonymously, without a thought of seeking
anything in return. Some have described him as a lifesaver.
Mr. Saigh saw many acquaintances become life-long friends,
friends who believe he changed their lives for the better
as a result of his generosity and care.
The Foundation continues the important work
begun by Mr. Saigh, by assisting St. Louisarea organizations
that benefit children and youth, primarily in the areas of
education and health care. The Foundation is particularly
interested in stimulating the development of new ventures,
as well as in supporting organizations that feature innovative
approaches or programs. Like Mr. Saigh, The Foundation is
especially dedicated to aiding those who might not otherwise
