SOA Grants

Sign of the Arrow was established in 1966 by the St. Louis Alumnae Club of Pi Beta Phi to provide philanthropic support to the community. The shop is staffed by 80+ community volunteers who give in excess of 22,000 hours annually to help run Sign of the Arrow. ALL shop proceeds benefit area agencies. Sign of the Arrow has donated more than $3.6 million dollars to 183 different charities since its inception. Customers truly impact the lives of others in their community when they shop at Sign of the Arrow!
