Grants of up to $5,000 to Texas nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools, and government agencies for programs that benefit the African American community in eligible regions. Focus areas include health, arts and culture, youth and education, and people in need. Applicants must serve the San Antonio area, including Bexar and the surrounding counties.

Grants are awarded in the areas listed below:

  • Arts and Culture: The history and culture of a community can be remembered, preserved and shared with others through various forms of artistic expression that celebrate, inspire and enlighten. The Fund will consider programs and initiatives that present the uniqueness of African American arts, and promote and preserve the rich and diverse African American cultural traditions in an educational, informational, inclusive and entertaining manner.
  • Health: The general health and well-being of the African American community is paramount to its perpetuity. The Fund will support programs that traverse the intervention continuum, including education and awareness, prevention and planning, and programs that provide access to holistic care, including both physical and mental health. The Fund is especially concerned with heart disease/stroke, diabetes, obesity, Sickle Cell Anemia, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, and other maladies and conditions that disproportionately affect the African American community.
  • People In Need: The social well-being and the development of human capital are of great significance to the perpetuation of the African American community. The Fund is committed to supporting programs that address critical issues and concerns that significantly affect the African American community, such as poverty, access to care/resources, abuse/neglect, teen pregnancy and family preservation. The Fund will also support programs that celebrate, nurture and develop African American adults and seniors.
  • Youth and Education: An educated community is a prerequisite for economic and social success. The Fund is committed to supporting programs that advance the value and importance of education, enlighten and engage African Americans in business, political and community sectors where they are typically underrepresented and foster and develop a diverse network of African American leaders in the San Antonio area. The Fund will also support programs that celebrate, nurture and develop African American youth.
