Gary Shaw


Gary Shaw is a Senior Vice President Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley and holds positions on numerous boards of numerous charitable, cultural and educational organizations which include The Foundry Art Centre and Lindenwood University. Among his numerous accolades and accomplishments, Gary has spent the last 40 years volunteering his time and energy to Missouri KIDS and has served as President of our Board of Directors for the last 20 years.

Gary’s countless hours of devotion, love and support for the recipients of Missouri KIDS are astounding.  He truly cares what happens to these kids and their families and has been instrumental in helping our recipients realize that there is life after a tragedy.

Gary understands the needs of our recipients so well because his son was the second student athlete to ever receive help from Missouri KIDS. That experience is what has made Gary so determined to make our recipients lives easier by providing them with the specialized equipment that they need.

Missouri KIDS would not be what it is today without Gary; he has been our biggest champion, fundraiser, cheerleader, and our favorite auctioneer since the day that he joined the board in 1975.
