Disaster Relief Funding

In the event of a crisis, emergency or natural disaster, the San Antonio Area Foundation is here to help.

Grant funding is available to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in Bexar, Atascosa, Bandera, Comal, Guadalupe, Kendall, Medina and Wilson counties. Disasters will be declared by the Area Foundation based on the thresholds commonly used by the federal, state or national nonprofit agencies.

What we fund

  • Assist those impacted by industrial accidents and widespread weather events
  • Assist with money that can be used for food supplies, prescriptions/medical not covered by insurance, emergency shelter and cleanup of the disaster
  • Support for those who cannot get assistance from other sources or whose losses are not covered by insurance
