Grant history

Mission

At the age of 15, due to the death his father, Otto A. Koehler traveled to San Antonio, Texas, as a ward of his uncle. After serving in World War I, he became a Graduate Brewmaster and was later named Chairman of the Board and President of what became Pearl Brewing Company until his death in 1969. Mr. and Mrs. Koehler were active philanthropists during their lifetime. Marcia Koehler established the Marcia and Otto Koehler Foundation prior to her death in 1981.

The Marcia and Otto Koehler Foundation supports charitable organizations with a focus that includes, but is not limited to, the support of medical research and medical care facilities; programs that encourage the fine arts in the City of San Antonio, including the display, production or performance of artistic works; and the promotion of the physical, mental and moral well-being of boys and girls in the San Antonio area by providing education, recreation, guidance and medical care.

Guidelines

Preference is given to organizations operating within (or providing service to) residents of San Antonio.

Eligibility to re-apply for a grant award from the Marcia and Otto Koehler Foundation requires organizations to skip 1 grant cycle (1 year) before submitting a subsequent application. For example, if your organization submitted a grant application for the February 2017 deadline and received a grant award in June, your organization would not be eligible to re-apply until February of 2019.

Grants typically range between $5,000 and $20,000.
