Gunn Gives

 

GUNN GIVES, THREE GENERATIONS OF GIVING

For more than 100 years, our commitment and involvement in the community has been an important part of the way we do business. It's not just our contributions to the automotive world that define Gunn Automotive Group; it's what we can give back. 

We call it Gunn Gives. 

We proudly support the Louise Batz Foundation, whose mission is to prevent medical errors by providing health education and if needed, real live advocates who can assist in speaking to medical staff to ensure patients understand everything about their treatment.
We believe in the mission of Camp Aranzazu (pronounced Ah ran' zah zoo) one of only three camps dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults with special needs and chronic illnesses. This incredible organization provides unique camping, environmental education, and retreat experiences. Regardless of any physical or developmental limitations, everyone can fully participate in and enjoy all the typical camping activities. Attendees come from all over Texas to enjoy this 104-acre, barrier-free facility on Copano Bay, near Rockport, Texas. 

Experts say that The Arts play a huge role in the success of our lives. According to the National Endowment for the Arts, children and adults who both created art and attended arts events had higher cognitive functioning than those of their non-art counterparts. We support the local art scene through these creative organizations; Artpace San Antonio, McNay Museum, San Antonio Symphony, San Antonio Opera Company, Los Compadres and San Antonio Missions Historical Park, just to name a few.

The future of our community is dependent upon the education of our citizens, Gunn believes in equal access to education for all. We support both public and private schools including; St. Paul's Episcopal Montessori School, Alamo Colleges, UT Health San Antonio, and the University of Texas at San Antonio.

While we give to a variety of causes, taking care of our children is one of the most important issues we support; Autism Service Center, Alamo Area Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas, Morgan's Wonderland and the Children's Shelter of San Antonio.
