WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO HELP
The Avenida Guadalupe Association serves the community in a number of meaningful ways. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, we rely on sponsors, funders, and volunteers to help us deliver educational opportunities that strengthen family economic success; affordable rental spaces for small businesses and non-profit organizations; and neighborhood cultural events that strength our historic cultural arts corridor; all of which move us toward fulfilling our mission.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Business and individual donors can help us in several ways:
- Donate Monetarily – Donated funds allow us to provide classes dedicated to advancing family economic success in the Westside and throughout San Antonio’s lower economic communities. Donations also help us to off-set the cost of community events like Christmas en El Barrio, and the Diez y Seis Parade.
- Volunteer – We welcome help from those ready to roll up their sleeves and involve themselves in a thriving Westside community. We offer opportunities to volunteer at any of the cultural events we sponsor as well as to help us keep this special inner city community graffiti and trash-free. Join our Adopt-the-Plaza initiative today!
- Donate Goods – We accept donated items such as school supplies for back-to-school give-aways and non-perishable foods that we can share and distribute to neighborhood food pantries.
- Join Our Community – Professionals with expertise in economic development, architectural enhancements, financial education, or any of our service areas are vital assets when we come together to discover new ways to meet our goals.
This is great people helping people. That’s what we needed —people who come together to make a difference for this community. BLESSINGS TO ALL THE ASSOCIATION.
I grew up on the Westside, so of course I love it!!
