This is a great community foundation. The staff is progressive and they have been a tremendous support for nonprofits in the San Antonio community. They are being very proactive in helping nonprofit organizations with operating expenses this year due to the poor economy. Other foundations should take their lead. They have participated in dialogs and workshops between foundations and nonprofits and are extremely open in finding ways that they can partner with us even with the restraints they themselves have with lower revenue from investments. Kudos to them.
