Mission Statement

"The Hidalgo Foundation of Bexar County operates exclusively for the charitable, literary, historical, and educational purpose for the sole benefit of Bexar County, Texas."

History

The Hidalgo Foundation of Bexar County, a non-profit organization, was formed in the summer of 2001 by Founder and President Tracy Ann Wolff. The Foundation operates exclusively for the charitable, literary, historical, and educational purpose for the sole benefit of Bexar County, Texas.

The initial mission of the Foundation was to preserve and renovate the century old historic Bexar County Courthouse. The Foundation’s goal was to raise six million dollars in order to renovate eleven historic courtrooms, over two thousand pieces of historic furniture, several public corridors, and to reconstruct and relocate the Child Abuse and Neglect Courtrooms and support areas.

Based on the success in the fields of technology, child and family services, and public/private partnerships, the Hidalgo Foundation has chosen to focus its current efforts on Bexar County BiblioTech, the first digital public library in the nation.
