Women & Girls Development Fund

Building a community of women who bring positive change through philanthropy

The Women & Girls Development Fund began in 2009 under the leadership of the San Antonio Area Foundation, Board members and a dedicated steering committee of respected women leaders. Since its inception, this outreach fund has distributed $100,000 in grants to support charitable programs that enable women and girls to reach their full potential.
