We can’t accomplish our mission without support from everyone in the community, and that includes the business community.
San Antonio Heron
We at the Heron are relaunching our EngageSA town hall series. It starts tonight with A Conversation with District 1 Councilman Mario Bravo, an interview followed by an audience Q&A on a range of pressing topics about San Antonio’s central district.
The Heron remains a tiny nonprofit newsroom, and we continue to work toward becoming self-financed. That said, we recently achieved a few milestones we’re excited to share.
The San Antonio Heron’s Board of Directors has now expanded to include five additional members as of early this year.
The San Antonio Heron has been selected to receive $5,000 in matching funds from NewsMatch for our dedication to serving communities of color in San Antonio. This bonus was made possible with support from Knight Foundation, Meta Journalism Project, and the Walton Family Foundation.
The San Antonio Heron, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt news organization, is seeking applicants for its board of directors.
The San Antonio Heron has received a pair of $10,000 grants, which come as the citywide housing discussion is getting ready to heat up.
Earlier this month, we at the Heron completed our first fundraising campaign, which began in late May, completely planned and executed on our own.
We’re thrilled to announce that the H. E. Butt Foundation is contributing $10,000 in matching dollars toward our 2021 Birthday Campaign.
On Monday, we’re launching our first Heron Holiday Raffle, during which we’ll give away a prize every weekday for two weeks.
