Gifts in Memory

Honoring the Memory of Alumni, Educators, Friends & Family

Gifts can be made in memory of an alumnus, a teacher, an administrator, an SAISD employee, an education advocate or any person who is special to you. Making a difference for a child with a gift in memory is a wonderful way to pay tribute to an individual who has made a difference for you. When a gift is made, the individual’s name is recognized on our website indefinitely as a lasting tribute. A certificate will also be mailed to family members and loved ones as requested. Please download this form to make a gift in memory or contact us for more information. You can also donate online by clicking on the Make a Donation button above via PayPal and note Gift in Memory of and the individual’s name in the notes.

For those desiring to start a scholarship or program in the name of a loved one, please contact us at or (210) 554-2235. There are many ways to create a lasting legacy and benefit students in SAISD and we are honored to assist you in doing so.
