Since the public created the vision in 2010, SA2020 has released various reports detailing the vision, our progress toward the SA2020 goals, and other research to support the work of our community.
Below you’ll find all official reports released or sponsored by SA2020. If you have specific questions about the information in these reports, please contact us.
Guide to Multi-Sector, Targeted Interventions During COVID-19
In order to partner effectively—in “normal times” and especially in crisis—organizations must know the breadth of their own impact. This guide supports multi-sector organizations—for-profit businesses, nonprofits, funders, public institutions, educational institutions, faith-based organizations, member/trade agencies—in assessing their impact on San Antonio’s complex community challenges and identifying opportunities to strengthen that impact through more targeted interventions and partnerships.
Recommendations for Collecting Inclusive Demographic Data
By revealing where information at the community level may be masking disparate outcomes, disaggregated data gives multi-sector organizations the opportunity to understand the different histories, challenges, and needs of San Antonians, and thereby create responsive policies, budgets, and programs. Disaggregated data additionally helps multi-sector organizations reach the populations that need their services the most. This one-pager offers a template for capturing demographics in your work. Where possible, you should track and report the intersection of demographics—not just race, but race and gender identity and age and place.
Recommendations for Board Leadership During COVID-19
The significance of nonprofit organizations in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis is two-fold: 1) they are delivering critical services to San Antonians most in need and 2) they are employing thousands of San Antonians through operations large and small. By providing oversight and guidance, and informing strategy and resource development, board members have an important role to play in protecting the delivery of critical services to San Antonians and supporting the financial health of nonprofits during COVID-19.
Recommendations for Coordinated Philanthropic Giving During COVID-19
By partnering with multi-sector organizations, tracking progress towards shared goals, and researching best practices in civic engagement over the last decade, SA2020 is uniquely positioned to make recommendations for coordinated philanthropic giving in order to meet the needs of San Antonians during COVID-19. This resource provides funders—including foundations, local government, and corporations—with recommendations and guiding questions for their work with nonprofit agencies amid the COVID-19 crisis.

The 2019 Community Impact Report shows where San Antonio stands on its shared Community Vision, nine years after creating it together.

2019 Nonprofit Partner Impact Report
The SA2020 Nonprofit Partner Impact Report celebrates nonprofit impact and promotes shared responsibility toward San Antonio’s Community Vision.
