In 2010, thousands of people in San Antonio gathered around tables to discuss and determine what the future of their city should look like.

The 11 Cause Areas that make up the SA2020 Vision create a picture of San Antonio in 2020:

Our residents are amongst the healthiest in the nation with access to quality education and economic opportunity. San Antonio is the safest big city in the U.S. and our neighborhoods are connected with residents that are engaged civically. The city is growing, but is sustaining its natural resources as a respectful steward. San Antonio has public transportation that is recognized as a model of efficiency, a vibrant downtown, a diverse and thriving creative community, and a local government that’s responsive and accountable.


SA2020 is a nonprofit whose mission is to turn this vision into a reality.


Measure Progress

SA2020 independently and objectively measures progress on all of the community’s shared goals. On our Data Dashboard, we track the progress of 58 indicators that the community selected as measures of our progress toward achieving the community vision for the year 2020.

Support Partners

Countless local organizations are working hard every day to improve the lives of people in San Antonio. For our partners, we offer support and resources, building cross-sector connections and collaborations to strengthen everyone’s work toward the community vision.

Engage the Public

Without the passionate people in our community, we never would have dreamed such a bold dream for San Antonio. Throughout the website, individuals can find organizations that are working to impact the community vision, and give their time, talent, dollars, and energy to help affect change in San Antonio.


How we got here:

Since the vision was created, SA2020 has become a privately-funded 501c3 nonprofit organization with a small-but-mighty staff who work tirelessly everyday to make our city better.

Our progress is impossible without YOU.

As a nonprofit, SA2020 can’t survive without the ongoing support of the same passionate community that dreamed up this bold vision. We continue to be impressed by the selfless drive of this community toward improvement, and are thankful every day for our amazing donors and supporters.
