About Us

At the SAISD Foundation we invest in students one classroom, one teacher, and one school at a time.

Operating as an independent 501 (c) (3) public charity, the SAISD Foundation works to ignite innovation and passion for student success across San Antonio ISD and across our San Antonio community.  In this role, the SAISD 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.

As we look for celebrate our ten year anniversary during the 2016-2017 school year, the SAISD Foundation has become an active and vibrant partner for SAISD.  In addition to investing in grants to educators, the SAISD Foundation invests in innovative programs, innovative schools and strategic initiatives across the District to help the District meet the new 5-Year Goals laid out by Superintendent Martinez in 2016.

To date, we are proud to have awarded more than $2.5 million dollars to enhance academic achievement and student success in SAISD and with growing philanthropy, we expect to double that support this year!
