Special Thanks from our amazing Grant Recipients


“On behalf of children and families of San Antonio and South Texas, we would like to thank the San Antonio Junior Forum for the contribution of $1,000.00 to support The Magik Theatre’s Tickets to Literacy.  Your financial support helps us to fulfill our mission by allowing Magik to provide all children the opportunity to experience live theatre, and nurture a love and understanding of the arts.”

“You not only make it possible for our organization to exist, but together we make the community a great place to live through passionate support of putting into practices our visions; a world in which the arts continue to provide an enriching and stimulating artistic experience that reinforces creativity, strengthens self-esteem and encourages children to love literature and expand their imaginations.”

“On behalf of our courageous cancer patients and survivors, thank you for your grant of $1,200.00 to purchase a washer and dryer.  Your grant helps us continue to provide essential survivorship services for our low-income, uninsured and under-insured clients.

With your help, SLEW Cancer Wellness Center is able to provide much needed cancer survivorship services at no cost to clients, including mental health counseling, patient navigation, case management, lymph drainage therapy, oncology massage therapy, nutritional counseling, exercise and fitness, wigs and hairdressing, mastectomy bras and prostheses, emergency food and clothing, and transportation to and from appointments.  A washer and dryer are essential to our oncology massage therapy, lymph drainage therapy and emergency clothing services and will ease staff’s burden.

As we celebrate 14 years of service to the community, we truly thank the San Antonio Junior Forum for so generously supporting our work.  We couldn’t do it without you!”
