The Genevieve and Ward Orsinger Foundation seeks to improve people's lives by supporting groups and institutions in Bexar County that foster lifelong learning and self-reliance, use the fine arts to enhance quality of life, and support healthy lifestyles.

The Foundation also conducts a focused grantmaking program in selected Central Texas counties for early childhood fine arts programs.

Since its founding, the goal of the Genevieve and Ward Orsinger Foundation has been to be faithful to the spirit of its founders and responsive to the needs of the communities it serves.
