Leave a Lasting Legacy Customized Philanthropy that Withstands the Test of Time.


Naturally, you hope your assets last comfortably throughout your lifetime, with enough left over for loved ones. In fact, we expect you're reading this section because you want to leave a charitable legacy, too. Our professional staff can work with your professional advisor to ensure your charitable goals are met.

When you make a planned gift with the Area Foundation, you become an exclusive member of our Visionary Circle legacy society and will be remembered as a champion of the causes dear to you.

The future is unpredictable. The San Antonio Area Foundation was built for that. Through our deep expertise, sound investment and careful oversight, we will ensure your charitable gift meets tomorrow’s challenges, as we’ve been doing for more than 50 years.
