Ways to Help
Thank you for your interest in helping Birthright moms!
Birthright Counseling, St. Louis, does not receive funding from the state or federal government and fully relies on generous support from donors to fulfill our mission.
Donors may qualify for the Missouri Pregnancy Resource Center Tax Credit, which provides a tax credit equal to 70% of your donation for donations over $100.
You can support our mission in the following ways.
Online gifts have an immediate and significant impact on our ability to counsel and care for women with unplanned pregnancies. Donations are gratefully accepted anytime online, Make a Donation
Your gift can be applied to your choice of:
The Mother's Program
Provides professional counseling which includes ongoing individual, group and postpartum counseling as well as classes, workshops and practical assistance as needed.
The Melissa's Smile Program
Provides professional counseling and support for parents whose baby has been diagnosed prenatally with a genetic abnormality or a serious medical condition.
The Friends of Birthright Scholarship Program
Assists with tuition, rent or book bills for women who would not be able to continue their education due to their unplanned pregnancy.
In addition to online giving, donations may be mailed to the Brentwood office, or delivered in person to any of our three office locations during regular business hours.
Tributes: Honorariums & Memorials
A tribute can be in honor of your parent for Mother’s or Father’s Day, a birthday, graduation, wedding or anniversary milestone, or it can be in memory of a departed loved one.
Your tribute will empower a woman to choose life for her unborn baby-what a wonderful way to honor or memorialize a loved one!
Schools for Life
Schools are invited to keep Birthright Counseling, St. Louis in mind when planning their events.
All funds raised make it possible for Birthright STL to continue offering free professional pregnancy and postpartum counseling services, educational classes, and practical support to the pregnant women and mothers who come to us for assistance with their unplanned or crisis pregnancies.
There are many creative ways for schools to participate. Call 314-391-4074 for more information.
Donations can be made on behalf of a school, student, teacher or staff member.
Since 1971, donations by our friends and neighbors, schools and churches, have kept our moms and babies equipped with everything they need to have a good start. We would be unable to offer practical assistance without you.
Considering Birthright Counseling, St. Louis provides pregnant women with professional onsite support, we strive to offer a nurturing environment with as little distraction as possible. To make our operations run smoothly, our volunteers have generously offered to make themselves available on Tuesdays at the Brentwood location to accept and sort donations.
Please call ahead at 314-962-5300 to make arrangements.
We’re sorry but we cannot accept car seats, furniture, baby equipment, food, toys, open diaper packages or used baby clothing.
We are very thankful for your kindness.
We gratefully accept new baby items. The following is our Baby Wish List:
Diapers size newborn and 1
Sleepers size 0- 3 months
Onesies size 0-3 months
Pacifiers in sealed package
Bottles in sealed package
We ask for new items as all of our moms receive a gift of a baby starter pack!
Collection Drives & Events
There are many fun ways to support Birthright moms all year long: baby showers, card parties, luncheons, trivia nights, dances, diaper drives, sleeper drives, etc. Events like these are so helpful to us in replenishing items for our Baby Starter Packs and Postpartum Bags as well as allowing us to provide for the practical needs of our moms.
If your organization, group, school or church would like to host a benefit for Birthright, please call us at 314-962-5300.
In effort to ensure lasting sustainability, we have established the Birthright Counseling, St. Louis, Endowment Fund. This fund offers our organization a permanent source of income. Annual distributions from the fund will allow us to keep our doors open for the abortion-vulnerable women of St. Louis and to continue our life-saving efforts.

Your gift of a lifetime is a lifeline to our moms and their babies!
Does your employer have a Matching Gift Program?
Many corporations set aside money each year into Matching Gift Programs, and much of it goes uncollected. Please ask your employer to add Birthright Counseling STL to their Matching Gift Program.
Your gift to Birthright will be doubled, and we will be doubly grateful!
