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.

Impact Austin members pool individual charitable donations and decide collectively how to award multiple strategic, high-impact grants.

Our membership requirements are to identify as female and to donate $1,250 each year ($1,000 goes into a grantmaking fund, while $250 helps defray the costs for our Signature Events, education initiatives, and operations). All contributions are tax-deductible.
