Board of Directors
Native San Antonian Gordon Hartman is a philanthropist and former homebuilder who at the age of 15 started his own landscaping business while attending a local seminary. By age 19, he had saved enough to begin his homebuilding business, and by age 23, he had started a land development company. Founded in 1983, Gordon Hartman Homes built housing for low- to moderate-income families. Over the next 22 years, Gordon grew his company into the largest locally-owned homebuilding and land-development enterprise in San Antonio. In recognition of his success in business, he has earned membership in both the San Antonio Business Hall of Fame and the Texas Business Hall of Fame. Gordon was also inducted into the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame in 2018 for bringing professional soccer to San Antonio and, in so doing, generating financial support for the special-needs community.

Maggie Hartman has worked alongside husband Gordon in trying to make life better for individuals with special needs. A lifelong San Antonian, she was employed in the mortgage business when she met Gordon. They married in 1991, and after daughter Morgan’s birth, she became a stay-at-home mom to focus on Morgan’s care and well-being. In 2013, Hartman was diagnosed with and successfully treated for breast cancer. As a result of that experience, she became a staunch advocate for early detection and treatment. She is actively involved with Morgan’s Wonderland and other members of Morgan’s “family” of Ultra-Accessible™, fully-inclusive venues, and she also devotes her time and energy to Morgan's annual gala fundraiser and to many other organizations that assist those with special needs.
