The Artist Foundation of San Antonio, co-founded in 2005 by Bettie Ward and Patricia Pratchett, is a non-profit organization which gives San Antonio, Texas artists grants up to $12,500 annually. The Foundation is a subsidiary of ARTS San Antonio and distinguishes itself in that it supports individual artists directly with funds for proposed projects. In some ways, this relatively hands-off approach to allow artists room for creative liberty is reminiscent of the philosophy of Artpace, a premiere international residency also in San Antonio. The Foundation supports a wide array of disciplines including performing arts, visual arts, media arts and literary arts. Every year the foundation holds San Antonio's ArtBall to help raise funds for the artists.
