Donate
to help

Give online or mail a check

You can donate online using your credit card. Or, if you prefer, you can mail your check to: Impact Austin P.O. Box 28148 Austin, TX 78755 (512) 335-5540

Match your gift

Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees. Check with your employer to find out if your company matches employees’ gifts to charitable nonprofit organizations. You may be able to double or even triple your donation to Impact Austin.

Give stock

You can support Impact Austin while gaining tax benefits by giving appreciated stock. Impact Austin accepts donations of stock in publicly traded companies.
If you would like to make a gift of stock, please contact us and we will send you instructions to provide to your broker to make the electronic transfer to us.
A donation using appreciated stock can provide tax advantages to you, including:

  • Allowing you to avoid paying federal (and state, if appropriate) taxes on the capital gain.
  • Providing an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of your gift, if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets for one year or longer.
  • Enabling you to make a larger gift than you could if you simply sold the stock, paid capital gains taxes and donated the net proceeds.

(NOTE: Before you make a gift of appreciated securities, please consult your financial planner or tax advisor to determine how the potential tax advantages described here apply to your specific situation.)

How does the endowment support Impact Austin?

As the endowment grows over time, the annual distributions of investment income to Impact Austin of up to 5% of the market value of the fund will go to support our operations and the grant-making mission of Impact Austin.  

 

Why did Impact Austin establish the endowment with the Austin Community Foundation?

The endowment  was established with the Austin Community Foundation (ACF), a local 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization that manages endowments for more than 70 local nonprofits as well as individual donors. Via ACF, Impact Austin will reap the benefits of gaining access to world-class investment services and receiving support from an organization focused on fostering an ecosystem of philanthropy. 

 

Can anyone give to the endowment, or do I have to be a member of Impact Austin?

We welcome gifts from anyone who would like to support the work done by Impact Austin. The Austin Community Foundation has a robust Gift Acceptance Policy, including transfers into our endowment from existing Donor Advised Funds under their management. To discuss ways you can give, please contact Sara Pantin, Impact Austin Endowment Committee Chair, or Val Kirk, Impact Austin Financial Administrator.

 

Is there a minimum donation accepted for the endowment?

No. Impact Austin has made meaningful annual giving accessible to women from nearly all socioeconomic backgrounds and we want our endowment to offer the same access.
