2016 Grant Award Recipients Selected by Membership
The Impact San Antonio membership made history at the 2016 Grant Award Night as they cast their votes and awarded four $100,000 grants to non-profits who will make an impact in our community. This brings the total dollars awarded since Impact SA’s inception to over $2,000,000.
The 2016 Impact San Antonio grant recipients are:
Bexar County Partners for Youth (PFY) -
Family Services Association of San Antonio, Inc.
Health and Wellness:
Alpha Home, Inc.
The remaining five finalists who will split the balance of the funds and receive a smaller grant of approximately $16,000 are:
• Cibolo Nature Center and Farms
• Daily Bread Ministries
• San Antonio Lifetime Recovery
• Texas Diaper Bank
• Westside Development Corporation
As in the past, to fulfill our responsibility as stewards of our members’ contributions, liaisons will be assigned to all grant recipients to oversee the execution of the grants and follow the outcomes, post- execution.
Since all of the 2016 membership contributions have been ostensibly award, the 2017 Drive for Five membership recruitment campaign has officially begun. To position us to award at least one grant next year in ALL five of our focus areas, we need existing members to renew, new women to join, and all women to share the Impact San Antonio story throughout the greater San Antonio area.
