For more than 40 years, SAAF has distributed funds to local initiatives for the betterment of our community. Thanks to generous contributions, 140 programs received funding from the foundation in 2008 totaling $2,274,065 in grant awards to 121 nonprofit groups serving San Antonio and South Texas.

The foundation awards competitive grants in the areas of animal services, arts and culture, biomedical research, community and human services, education, environment, historic preservation, medicine and health care, visual research, and visual services. Divided into two categories, research and community, the grants are awarded based on the community’s most essential needs.

UTSA has a long-standing and successful tradition of submitting grant applications to SAAF. Potential grant writers are encouraged to attend a training sessions to become familiar with the new electronic application process as well as obtaining general information regarding the OSP routing process.
