About the SAISD Foundation


At the SAISD Foundation we invest in students one classroom, one teacher, and one school at a time.  The SAISD Foundation operates as a 501 (c) (3) public charity supporting educational excellence and innovation across San Antonio ISD.  The Foundation supports programs that aim to increase student achievement, recognize staff and teacher excellence, increase and strengthen business and community partnerships, and celebrate success in San Antonio ISD. The SAISD Foundation invests in Innovative Grants, New Teacher Grants and Strategic Initiatives that meet District goals and works to pilot programs of promise in San Antonio ISD.  Click here for a recent article on progress in San Antonio ISD and how the SAISD Foundation is supporting this success.

In our short history, the Foundation has quickly become an active and vibrant partner for San Antonio ISD and is proud to have awarded more than $1.7 million dollars to enhance academic achievement in our schools.  Visit our upcoming events to see how you can get involved, or read on for more ways to support our 54,000 students across our 90 schools in the heart of San Antonio.
