Giving Back

As a staple in the St. Louis metropolitan area since 1921, S. M. Wilson makes every effort to enrich our Community and the communities we work in around the country. Our employees spend countless hours serving non-profit organizations such as American Red Cross, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Dream Factory of St. Louis, Epworth Children and Family Services, Habitat for Humanity, Heart of America Foundation and the Salvation Army, to name a few.

Dream Factory of St. Louis

Since 2007, S. M. Wilson has helped raise more than $250,000 for The Dream Factory of St. Louis through the firm’s annual Swinging Fore Dreams Golf Tournament. Through hard work and dedication, we have granted the dreams of more than 50 children and their families.

“We are grateful for the continued support of S. M. Wilson for eight consecutive years,” said Bene Messmer, a long term volunteer for The Dream Factory of St. Louis.  “This generosity is overwhelming to the kids and the families we serve.”

The Dream Factory of Saint Louis was founded in 1983 — one of 34 non-profit Dream Factory chapters around the country. The St. Louis Chapter continues to brighten the lives of children with serious illnesses.

Habitat for Humanity

We are a builder, so what better way to support the communities we serve than building homes with Habitat for Humanity. As an avid supporter of Habitat for Humanity (in fact, President Amy Berg is on the St. Louis Board). S. M. Wilson and its employees have helped provide affordable housing to those in need.

Our latest project has been the Big Chief Home in St. Louis County. This project included the gut renovation of a three bedroom home and addition of a fourth bedroom. S. M. Wilson employees donated personal time and funds to renovate and stock the home.
