The City of San Angelo is the benefactor of three art-related endowments managed by the San Angelo Area Foundation. For more information on these and other endowments, go to saafound.org.
- PASA Endowment Fund: PASA stands for Public Art-San Angelo. Fred Griffin created the fund to provide a funding mechanism for future public art works in San Angelo as approved by the Public Art Commission.
- Frances Mertz Memorial Sculpture Maintenance Endowment Funds: Established in memory of Frances Mertz, this fund provides maintenance dollars for San Angelo bronze public art, which Mrs. Mertz sought to create and propagate. The "200%" sheep sculpture at the Bryant Boulevard split and the "Los Dos Angelas" sculptures at the San Angelo Visitors Center are just two of the works she dreamed of realizing.
- Elmer Kelton San Angelo Parks Endowment Fund: Established from the proceeds of a special project to build a buffalo sculpture in honor of Kelton's lifetime achievements, endowment proceeds go to the City of San Angelo Parks Commission to provide financial assistance to help maintain this and other sculptures in other city parks.
