Helping organizations that serve individuals with mental & physical special needs

The Foundation

Families who are caring for loved ones with cognitive and physical special needs face daily obstacles that can be hard to imagine. In September of 2005, Gordon Hartman established a foundation to help local area agencies assist these families.

The Gordon Hartman Family Foundation supports the programs, projects and collaborative efforts of Bexar County organizations that serve individuals with cognitive and physical disabilities, with a particular focus on serving children's needs in this area.

The Foundation strives to transform lives through our Four Primary Objectives:

  • Monetary Grants - Our monetary grants are distributed to Bexar County, Texas non-profit agencies that serve the special needs community. Agencies receiving grants are chosen by a selection committee, which reviews letters of inquiry and formal grant applications.
  • Consulting Services - The Foundation also assists non-profit agencies with internal and financial management, program development and future growth planning.
  • Resource Directory - Through our Resource Directory, the Foundation provides a simple yet effective tool for finding current information on existing services available for a wide range of disabilities. We are committed to helping you find workable solutions to your needs, so please contact us if you need further assistance.
  • Programs - The Foundation hosts a series of programs for individuals with special needs and their families to attend throughout the year. These programs consist of dances, Parent Informational Seminars and Non-Profit Seminars.
