Energized by the 148 new members who joined Impact Austin for 2018, we are moving quickly to reach more prospective members. The 'Coffee Team' already has two events scheduled: March 28 in zip code 78702 and April 11 in zip code 78731. If you have a friend (or two!) that you want to introduce to Impact Austin, please contact Rebecca Powers for details about time and location. We promise to present a compelling case for investing in our success!
Congratulations to the Girls Giving Grants (g3) team, one step closer to announcing their $8,200 grant award.Read More
Our Girls Giving Grants (g3) initiative is comprised of dynamic young women philanthropists in grades 8-12. In twelve years, they have invested $63,100 in youth-serving programs of greater Austin nonprofits.
Now in the midst of their newest grant cycle, the g3 team has taken a big step in their evaluation process. From 45 applications, they have invited these organizations to the next stage of consideration:
Mother’s Milk Bank
Austin Child Guidance Center
Kids in a New Groove
Next, sub-committees of the g3 team will each study one semi-finalist in depth. They may reach out to the nonprofit with requests for more information. Each group will then make a presentation to the entire membership, advocating for one particular semi-finalist. Ultimately, the full membership will vote to select two grant finalists.
Grant finalists will be asked to schedule site visits on April 7, and a final grant award of $8,200 to the single winning agency will be announced in mid-April.
We’re so proud of our Girls Giving Grants, their dedication, and the philanthropic lives they’ve just begun.
