Centene Charitable Foundation

Centene

Centene Charitable Foundation is a sponsor of the Friends of Scouting giving campaign and a longtime supporter of the Greater St. Louis Boy Scouts of America. The Centene Charitable Foundation helps fund many of the Council’s key initiatives, working to provide St. Louis area Scouts with life-changing experiences.

As a national leader in healthcare services, Centene is mindful of the connection between health and community. The company believes that quality of life has a significant impact on an individual’s overall well-being, especially at a young age. Because of this, Centene invests in research, educational programs, and nonprofit organizations to ensure the youngest residents of Greater St. Louis have the resources needed to thrive. The Council is proud to work with The Centene Charitable Foundation to help our Scouts develop self-confidence, academic and leadership skills, and establish core values they’ll carry into their adult lives.

The Centene Charitable Foundation sponsors the Greater St. Louis Area Council’s Urban Outreach Program, STEM programs, the North Star Community of Friends Scouting, the Missouri Sporting Clays Classic, and the Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner. The Foundation has been a presenting sponsor of the Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner for eight consecutive years.

Michael Neidorff and the Greater St. Louis Area Council

As Centene’s chairman, president, and CEO, and the longest-tenured executive among the major managed care companies, Michael Neidorff understands the value of developing leadership skills and a sense of community early in life. Mr. Neidorff has been involved with the Greater St. Louis Boy Scouts of America since 1990. Over the years, he has served as Pathfinder district chair, vice chairman and chairman of the Special Needs Committee, vice president of Finance, and as a Council vice president — a position he still holds today.

Mr. Neidorff received the Greater St. Louis Area Council’s Silver Beaver Award in 2005. He also served as co-chairman of the Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner, where the Soaring Eagle Awards are presented each year. In 2015, he and his wife, Noémi Neidorff, were honored with the Soaring Eagle Award for their outstanding civic work in the St. Louis community.
