The Kresge Foundation has awarded a $400,000 cross-team grant to SA202 of San Antonio, Texas, to help strengthen collaborations among the city’s nonprofits that support efforts to increase opportunity for residents.

SA2020 will leverage the funds from Kresge’s Human Services Program and American Cities Practice to continue to track data of the city’s progress, catalyze the community in thoughtful and deliberate action, and support nonprofit partners, particularly aligning and engaging the human service sector to enhance outcomes.

“SA2020’s approach to building networks of supports driven by human services organizations has the potential to advance both social and economic mobility for the residents of San Antonio,” said Sandra Ambrozy, senior program officer for Kresge’s Human Services Program. “The approach to embracing data and shifting human services organizations to focus on outcomes for their constituents will offer lessons for the human services sector and other cities looking to implement similar efforts.”

SA2020, which tracks data and supports nonprofit collaborations to foster change and make San Antonio a world-class city by the year 2020, recently released its 2016 Impact Report, highlighting community efforts and updated community indicators, providing a look at where San Antonio stands on our shared goals and where gaps persist.

“With this funding, we will be able to do more to align, support, and connect organizations in our community that are moving the needle,” said Molly Cox, president and CEO of SA2020. “We hope to double our partnerships in the next two years from 145 organizations to over 300.”
