Introducing the Impact Austin Philanthropy Circle!


A new and formal title to honor and encourage a loving practice already in place. Many of our members make gifts beyond their dues payments to bolster Impact Austin’s mission. Going forward, the Philanthropy Circle will be one vehicle for such annual support.

Why should you join the Impact Austin Philanthropy Circle?


We are strongest when we give together. Impact Austin members already contribute to a fund of grantmaking monies every year. That generosity has funded $7.87 million in community grants. Our dues also include a portion that partially underwrites the cost of our work - but only partially. Funding provided by Philanthropy Circle members will offer additional investment in member support, outreach and education programs, as well as communications, technology, and grant management systems.

You can learn more about the Philanthropy Circle in our blog post here!

We warmly acknowledge all those that have made donations to support the Impact Austin Philanthropy Circle. List below represents gifts received January 1, 2021 - October 1, 2021.
