The WGDF is a community outreach fund of the San Antonio Area Foundation that promotes philanthropy and supports non-profit organizations serving women and girls in the San Antonio area through leadership development programs. Since 2012, WGDF has distributed more than $200,000 to charitable programs. The WGDF receives administrative support from the Area Foundation and all grant decisions are made by the fund through their designated representatives.
In 2021, the WGDF will award one $10,000 grant to a nonprofit serving Bexar County and surrounding counties in one of our two program areas. These programs promote leadership and/or mentorship of women and girls to foster empowerment and self-leadership that enables them to reach their full potential.
- Leadership development and/or mentorship of girls in grades 6th through 12th
