Gifts in Memory

Honoring the Memory of Alumni, Educators, Friends & Family

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 as a lasting tribute.

To make a Gift in Memory, please download this form or donate online by clicking on the Give Now button above and be sure to specify for whom your gift is being made in Comments. Certificates acknowledging your gift will be sent to the next of kin or the contact provided. Although we do acknowledge donors who make Gifts in Memory, we do not share donation amounts.

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