Sherri Weintrop Spotlighted
Philanthropy in National Magazine
‘Lion of Judah’ Magazine selected her as a woman in her 50s for outstanding contributions to the Jewish community.
Philanthropy is at the core of everything Sherri Frank Weintrop, 52, does in her business and in her personal life. Because of her tremendous contributions to Jewish Federation of St. Louis in the area of women’s philanthropy, she was selected as one of the women in her 50s to be spotlighted in an upcoming national “Lion of Judah” Women’s Philanthropy Magazine.
Frank Weintrop, a CPA, CFP®, is founder of Wealth Management Advisors, Inc, a St. Louis registered investment advisory firm. Professionally, she encourages all her clients to consider charitable giving for the importance of leaving their legacy to the community -- and the tax benefits.
Personally, Sherri is a major force in Jewish Federation. She’s given to the Annual Campaign since 2002, increasing her gift every year and is an Emerald Lion of Judah Level. In 2006, she established a six-figure LOJ legacy gift which will endow her annual campaign gift to Federation and leave a sizeable annual gift to Shaare Zedek Synagogue. She is also bequeathing 18 percent of her estate to several local Jewish organizations.
As a volunteer, she was a driving force behind the launch of the Jewish Community Foundation of St. Louis, the central resource for planned giving. In doing so, she helped engage 13 local beneficiaries in the work of JCF by creating a Council, where each had representation. This community collaboration was integral when Sherri, once again, helped launch “Create a Jewish Legacy.” In addition, she has been instrumental in helping to secure several sizeable legacy gifts.
For her work in the area of legacy giving, in 2010, she received a Professional Advisory Award from the St. Louis Planned Giving Council.
Currently, Sherri is an at large board member of Jewish Federation and is Shaare Zedek Synagogue’s Chair of CJL. In 2008 for her volunteer service to Solomon Schechter Day School, she received the coveted Leo I. Mirowitz Award.
Sherri is married to Danny Weintrop, and they have a 22-year-old son, Bryan.
