As women with a passion for giving back, we are strongest when we learn, grow, and give together.

If you value knowing more about the needs in our local community and enjoy engaging with other motivated women who share your passion, we would love for you to #JoinImpact Austin!

By pooling our resources and skills, we award high-impact grants that make a bigger difference in our community than any of us could achieve alone.

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 a woman, 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.

Since relocating to Austin in January 2023, I have maintained a passion for making an impact. I joined Impact Austin because I support its mission and want to connect with accomplished female leaders in the community.

I joined Impact Austin to be a part of something greater than myself.


I wanted to join women who were making a difference and having an impact in the community.
