Dentists and Patient


To provide grants to nonprofit organizations committed to improving the quality of health and healthcare of the residents of the BHFSA service area. In particular, the Foundation will strive to support activities consistent with the Foundation’s mission, priorities and efforts that are based on sound strategies.


Priorities – The Foundation will give strong consideration to programs that:

  • Address health issues of high incidence or among high-risk populations.
  • Reduce gaps in service and improve access to healthcare.
  • Eliminate disparities in health.
  • Offer educational and preventive measures to avert the development of health issues.
  • Provide services that address the needs of the medically vulnerable and consider the continuum of care.

Funding Strategies-The Foundation will give strong consideration to programs that:

  • Are based on best-practices, with measurable and practical outcome evidence.
  • Can be replicated, taken to scale, and sustainable.
  • Collaborate and partner with faith-based organizations and health agencies.
  • Share knowledge within the nonprofit community and among the greater community.
  • Seek other funding sources, so that the Foundation is not the sole full funder.

 Thank you for your interest in the Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio.

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.
