Our Mission

Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio is committed to honoring God and our Baptist heritage by fostering and funding health initiatives in our community.

Our History

More than 100 years ago, a group of San Antonio physicians planted the seeds that grew to become Baptist Health System (BHS). As a nonprofit, faith-based system, BHS successfully ministered to both the physical and spiritual health of its patients.

When the BHS Board of Trustees recognized that economic hardships threatened to compromise the system’s ability to provide exceptional care, the system was sold in 2003 to Vanguard Health Systems of Nashville, TN. In 2013, Vanguard Health Systems was sold to Tenet Healthcare Corporation of Dallas, TX.

Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio (BHFSA) was formed in 2004, following the sale of the Baptist Health System. BHFSA was created to fund not-for-profit healthcare services and education throughout Bexar County and seven surrounding counties.

BHFSA is committed to being the hands and feet of God as it serves the community. Grants are given on a yearly basis to organizations across the healthcare spectrum, ranging from medical clinics to churches to afterschool programs.

Since inception, BHFSA has awarded almost $100 million in grants to further BHFSA’s mission of honoring God by improving the health of our community.

Our Work

  • BHFSA makes grants to roughly 100 nonprofits every year.
  • Grants are given through an application process.
  • Grants decisions are made by a diverse group of trustees from a broad spectrum of professional backgrounds.
  • Every grant recipient is given not only financial support, but also faith-based encouragement and prayer.
    In addition to grants, BHFSA gives gifts and sponsorships to a variety of nonprofit organizations throughout the year to support local events that further our health goals.

By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it…   For no one can lay any foundation other than the one  already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
