Together we can
Women & Girls Development Fund Mission
Grants through the Women & Girls Development Fund (WGDF) support non-profit organizations in San Antonio that are focused on leadership development for women and girls in our community. Through the fund, the objective is to empower women and girls to find the confidence they need to become leaders. It is important that we prioritize the sustainability of these important non-profit organizations. We must help promote a broader concept of leadership. We believe that leadership free of gender bias with a foundation of empowerment is crucial in order to lead others.
Making A Difference
Since 2012, WGDF has distributed more than $200,000 to charitable programs helping women and girls reach their full potential. The Women & Girls Development Fund receives administrative support from the San Antonio Area Foundation (SAAFdn) and grant support from the John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation, a fund of SAAFdn.
Uniting Women FOR Women and Girls in Our Community.
The Women & Girls Development Fund builds a community of women who create positive change through philanthropy. Dedicated volunteers are engaged in fund development and the strategic direction of the WGDF.
