The Genevieve and Ward Orsinger Foundation seeks to improve people's lives by supporting groups and institutions in Bexar County that foster lifelong learning and self-reliance, use the fine arts to enhance quality of life, and support healthy lifestyles.
The Foundation also conducts a focused grantmaking program in selected Central Texas counties for early childhood fine arts programs.
The Foundation does not provide grants to individuals or for scholarships, debt reduction, start-up, capital campaigns, endowments, fundraising events or sponsorships. All grant recipients must be 501(c)(3) organizations or public non-profits.
Since its founding, the goal of the Genevieve and Ward Orsinger Foundation has been to be faithful to the spirit of its founders and responsive to the needs of the communities it serves.
As part of discerning its vision for the future, along with the realities of the present, the Foundation's Board of Trustees has determined to suspend the responsive grant process for 2017.
In lieu of the responsive grant review process, the Board will be taking time in 2017 for strategic planning and visioning. Decisions about future grantmaking initiatives and plans will be posted as updates on this website.
This action in no way reflects a movement away from the Foundation's commitment to improve the quality of life for the San Antonio and Central Texas areas it serves. Rather, it represents an even greater commitment to discern the ways in which it can be the most effective partner and catalyst for the nonprofit community.
