More members mean more funds to invest in our nonprofits and neighbors. Impact Austin members have full participation privileges, and you become a member as soon as payment is initiated, either by setting up monthly payments or by paying the annual donation in full. If you’re a member, you get to vote!

Member requirements:

  • identify as female, and

  • donate $1,250 each year.

Using a collective giving model, we combine $1,000 of each contribution to fund strategic, high-impact grants that we award semi-annually to Central Texas nonprofits; the remaining $250 helps defray the costs for our Signature Events, education initiatives, and operations. All contributions are tax-deductible.

Impact Austin has been transformational for my life and career. It informed my passion for social impact. Today I get to share that passion with my students as the Director of the Social Innovation Initiative at UT.

The more women who join Impact Austin, the more of a difference we make. Knowing that I am a small part of that and have touched so many through the grant process makes me feel even more connected to this beautiful city.

I really enjoyed being on a gave me a deep understanding of how Impact Austin members choose the nonprofit organizations. The process is thorough and allowed me to learn about over 40 different nonprofits here in Central Texas.
