The Leffingwell Society

The leadership giving group of Forest Park Forever

Rich History, Remarkable Impact

The Leffingwell Society was named in honor of Hiram W. Leffingwell, one of the founders of Forest Park, to recognize individuals, corporations and foundations making leadership gifts of $1,000 or more to Forest Park Forever’s Annual Friends Campaign. Much of the progress you see in Forest Park today is the result of this growing group of remarkable and loyal friends. Last year, our Leffingwell Society members contributed more than $1.75 million to the organization — more than 75% of total annual giving for the year.

Each year, Leffingwell members gather for exclusive events in the Park, from intimate settings on the Emerson Grand Basin to the grand reopening of the St. Louis Mounted Police Horse Stables.
