This will be the eighth year a project grant will be awarded to a San Antonio non-profit agency by Impact San Antonio, a “giving circle” comprised of individual women who each contribute $1,000 annually and combine their donations into at least one substantial grant per year. “This year our goal is to reach 200 members so we can give even more money to the deserving non-profits that serve our community,” says Ann Parker, Board President, Impact San Antonio. “We are looking for more women who want to ‘make a difference in people’s lives, and encourage them to visit our website for more information on how to join.” The deadline to join Impact San Antonio for 2012 as a member is September 30, 2012.
