Impact Austin Executive Director Appointed

As we look forward to our 2015 grant cycle and approach our $5 million milestone, we are pleased to share important news with you!

After a review of more than 40 applicants and a month-long interview process, the Board of Directors selected Donna Benson-Chan to be Executive Director of Impact Austin, effective January 1, 2015. In her presentation to the Board last month, Donna shared a strategic vision for leading our organization into its second decade. She will continue to lead with a thoughtful and experienced understanding of Impact Austin's admirable position among collaborative and collective giving philanthropies across the United States.
 
Among her priorities as executive director, Donna will shepherd Impact Austin as it expands its innovative grant making programs and develops meaningful education opportunities for members. Together with our members, we will further the reputation and sustainability of Impact Austin and continue to make a real and measurable impact on our Central Texas community.
 
Please join me in welcoming Donna Benson-Chan to her new position. We invite your questions. And, if you are not already a member, join us now for 2015!
 
Warm regards,
 
Rebekah Bonde
President, Board of Directors
