    Your Generosity Has Changed Your World

    Since 2003, our Foundation has raised over $38 million dollars from individuals and organizations in our community. That money was reinvested to enhance your San Antonio River experience. Our project partners —San Antonio River Authority, Bexar CountyCity of San Antonio, and US Army Corps of Engineers— have invested over $384 million in river improvements for our community. Together, our investments have added over $1.5 billion in economic impact through adjacent private investment and development.

    Thank You for Your Continued Support

    I-35 Overpass near Camden Street

    It’s hard not to smile at Philadelphia artist Donald Lipski’s school of giant fish swimming through the sky beneath the interstate overpass. The cluster of 25 seven-foot-long creatures of hand-painted fiberglass resin are anatomically correct models of long-eared sunfish, native to the river. Impressive by day and stunningly lit from within at night, the glowing fish are a beacon from blocks away, adding color and levity to a once neglected downtown area. A 26th fish is on display in The DoSeum, San Antonio's Museum for Kids, offering an up-close view of the installation’s vibrant detailing.
