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 would want their memory connected to supporting the education of SAISD students. 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 in your life. When a gift is made, the individual’s name is recognized on our website indefinitely as a lasting tribute. To make a gift in memory, please download this form or donate online by clicking on the Donate button above and be sure to specify for whom your gift is being made on the line provided.  For gifts made by submitting the form and mailing a check, a certificate will be mailed to our family contact (or those listed). For gifts made online, an email will be sent to the family contact with name and email addresses of the donors.  Although we do acknowledge donors who make gifts in memory on that page of our website, we do not share donation amounts publicly or with the family unless instructed to do so by the donor.

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