Grant Awards & Resources

Nonprofits: Apply for Grants to Help Fulfill Your Mission

Honoring donors' wishes for the betterment of the community is the fundamental principle behind the San Antonio Area Foundation's grant distribution process. We award grants from Donor Advised Funds, Designated Funds, Outreach Funds, Unrestricted Funds and Field-of-Interest Funds.

Grants from Donor Advised and Designated Funds are made throughout the year based upon recommendations from donors who established those funds.

Grants from Unrestricted, Field-of-Interest and Outreach Funds are awarded through competitive application processes that occur at different times during the year. We encourage you to click on the links to the left for specific information about each funding opportunity.

Conflict of Interest Statement

The San Antonio Area Foundation is conscious of the possible conflict of interest which may arise as the result of staff, Board members, or Committee members being on the Board of applicant organizations or intimately connected with applicants for grants or scholarships. At the same time, the Foundation recognizes it is inherent in the process of the selection of members of the staff, Board of Directors and Committees that they are and will continue to be active in the community. Likewise, the Foundation does not desire to deprive agencies, although they may be prospective applicants, from the benefits to be derived from the expertise of the members of the staff, Board or Committees.
