Donate Today to Support COVID-19 Response Needs

The COVID-19 Response Fund is jointly managed by the San Antonio Area Foundation and the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County. The Area Foundation is hosting the fund, waiving administrative fees, and encouraging businesses and philanthropic partners to join in the response. 

The Fund is active, and continues to grow as new partners join the effort for both immediate needs and the longer-term recovery ahead. This process enables multiple rounds of support as the community needs and challenges evolve. 

To give:

  • Businesses, donor advised funds and philanthropic entities should contact Lisa Brunsvold at or 210-228-3760 to join the effort.

  • Individuals interested in making a donation to the Fund of $25 or more can do so through the United Way’s options, or texting HELPSATX to 41444. Donations made to the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County will be added to the COVID-19 Response Fund.

  • If you would like to donate your stimulus check to the Area Foundation’s efforts to address ongoing community needs, please mail your signed/endorsed check as follows:

Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity as our community pools its resources thoughtfully and with great intention to serve significant needs during this crisis.

We want to thank our co-partner, the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County for their collaborative efforts as we answered the call for action during this time of immense need. As of May 6, the Fund has awarded $5 million to over 150 nonprofits. Donors continue to make contributions, and awards will continue to be made based on applications already received during the nearly two-month application period.

We encourage nonprofits to monitor the Area Foundation’s website, social media channels, and sign up for the Nonprofit News e-newsletter for additional Area Foundation SAAFdn grant opportunities.
