Small organizations do big things and are incredibly valuable in our community. Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio recognizes this and provides Community Impact Grants of up to $10,000 to support smaller initiatives and organizations that have a large impact on community health. Priority is given to the support of grassroots health activities, church health ministry development, and increased capacity to provide health services.
