Website Announcement - August 2017
Since its founding, the goal of the Genevieve and Ward Orsinger Foundation has been to be faithful to the spirit of its founders and responsive to the needs of the communities it serves.
After a hiatus in responsive grantmaking in 2017 to allow for strategic planning and visioning, the Foundation's Board of Trustees has made several decisions. One was to operate from a virtual office, in an effort to streamline administrative operations and maximize the direction of funds toward grantmaking. The other decision relates to the responsive grantmaking focus for Bexar County in 2018.
The focus for Bexar County for 2018 will be on DualGen (Two-Generation) Programs for children and families. This focus represents the Foundation's commitment to improve the quality of life for the areas it serves by being as effective a partner and catalyst for the nonprofit community as it can be. For more information, see the Guidelines page.
The focus for Central Texas counties (Comal, Guadalupe, Hays, Kendall and Travis Counties) will not be changed for the 2018 grant cycle. See the Guidelines for more information.
The focus for both areas will be evaluated on an ongoing basis and may be changed in years beyond 2018, but in all cases will align with the longstanding mission and goals of the Foundation.
Letters of Intent will be accepted through the online portal only beginning September 1, 2017 and closing at 5 pm on September 29, 2017. Late submissions will not be accepted. For more information, see the Guidelines and FAQ Pages.
