We are part of a tomorrow that starts today.

You may be passionate about supporting the arts, education, animals, the environment, or another wonderful cause. No matter where you choose to direct your gift, you will enrich our community for generations to come.

Co-Invest in Our Community Grantmaking Funds

Help us build a city where San Antonio residents are deeply connected, have equitable opportunities to thrive, and contribute to the vitality of the community. 

Using trust-based philanthropic principles to guide our grant efforts, the San Antonio Area Foundation invests in the nonprofit community through funds established by caring donors who entrust us with their philanthropic goals. 

Our work is centered on understanding our community needs, building relationships with our stakeholders and being responsive to the feedback we obtain regarding our processes.
