San Antonio Area Foundation Grant Awarded To SAFCC
We are very happy to announce the San Antonio Area Foundation has awarded
SAFCC a $40,000 grant to cover subsidy expenses for the 5 clinics participating
in our Subsidy Program: SpaySA, San Antonio Humane Society, Animal Defense
League, Pet Shotz and Hill Country Animal League. This allows SAFCC to use
money from donations and fundraisers to support trapping projects and to pay
vet bills for sick or injured cats.
The San Antonio Area Foundation, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014, makes
grants from funds established by individuals, families, businesses or other entities to
support charitable causes. The Area Foundation manages more than $250 million in
assets and has distributed more than $230 million for scholarships and grants to educate
youth, preserve the environment, protect animals, fund research and provide services
that enhance the quality of life in our region.
Thank you San Antonio Area Foundation for making a difference in the lives of
our Community Cats!
