WHO WE ARE
Impact Austin is an Austin-based women’s collective giving organization, funding Central Texas nonprofits that provide services in Bastrop, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties. Our membership and leadership proudly reflect the many faces, cultures and walks of life that make up our society. We believe diversity helps us to better understand and address the issues facing our community.
As women with a passion for giving back, we believe that we are strongest when learn, grow, and give together.
Impact Austin members pool individual charitable donations and decide collectively how to award strategic, high-impact grants. Our membership requirements are to identify as female and to donate $1,250 each year. We combine $1,000 from each member’s annual gift into a central fund, with grants determined after several rounds of evaluation and voting. We apply the remaining $250 per member investment to help defray the costs for our Signature Events, education initiatives, and operations.
