Community Impact Grants

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 $12,000 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.


Step 1: Review General Requirements

It is important that potential applicants fully read, understand, and meet the Foundation’s General Requirements for Funding before beginning the application process.


Step 2: Review Specific Grant Requirements

  • The organization must have had less than $250,000 in actual revenue during the most recently completed fiscal year*;
  • The organization must have an annual operating budget of at least $15,000 (for the fiscal year that includes July 1, 2024);
  • The application amount must not exceed 20 percent of the organization’s operating budget; and
  • The application amount must fall in the range of $3,000-$12,000.
  • Organizations that received a Community Impact Grant in the most recent grant year may apply, but preference will be given to organizations that have not recently received funding from the Foundation.

* Churches are exempt from this requirement

The application introduces an organization and its request to the Foundation.

It is designed to help the Foundation determine whether the request is a good match for the Foundation’s present interests and funds.

An application may only be submitted online during the specified date range.

Site Visit

The site visit allows Foundation staff and trustees to better understand the request for funding, and usually takes the form of a brief in-person meeting at the location where the funding will be used.

Due to the high number of applicants and scheduling constraints, site visits are not possible for all organizations. Applicants selected for a site visit will be contacted in September.

Site visits are subject to several variables and may be waived at the Foundation’s discretion.

November 2024


Grantees will be notified following final approval by the trustees.

Notification of whether or not a grant is awarded will be sent to the email address of the individual who submitted the application.

Applicants should only inquire about the status of an application if notification has not been received by Nov. 26, 2024.

For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own,
they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints.
