Mission

The New Braunfels Area Community Foundation connects people who care with causes that matter for the enduring benefit of our community. The foundation does this by: — Creating a culture of charitable giving and providing sound stewardship of funds and endowments. — Offering comprehensive services to donors, thereby enhancing the impact and efficiency of their charitable giving. — Safeguarding donor intent in perpetuity. — Offering effective grant making and support services to nonprofits. — Facilitating strategic and innovative solutions to current community needs and emerging issues.

Most Meaningful Change

Our community foundation is in its infancy. Its formation and introduction into the community has been our biggest focus. Educating the community and especially the professional advisors and decision makers about who we are and the services we provide has been the most significant change.
