Four Finalists Named for Spring Grants
At our June 6 Annual Meeting, Impact Austin will award a total of $188,600 in the Community and Education focus areas. Members attending the Annual Meeting will be able to congratulate new Community Partners and celebrate Impact Austin surpassing the $8 million milestone for total grantmaking.
Following a process that includes initial application review, deep-dive reviews in sub-committees, and site visits with nonprofit representatives, Impact Austin Grant Review Committees (GRCs) selected two finalists in each focus area. Each finalist will receive an Impact Austin grant.
In mid-May, the entire Impact Austin membership will receive voting packets to facilitate individual votes that determine grant amounts. The finalist in each focus area receiving the majority votes will be awarded a restricted grant of $75,500 (for the purpose proposed in the grant application) and the other finalist will be awarded an unrestricted grant of $18,800.
