Each year, there is a special rite of spring at Impact Austin. After a winter’s work by the women of the Focus Area Committees (FACs), the site visits are announced and groups of Impact Austin members go out for a trip to the nonprofit applicants they have identified as having the strongest program or project proposal.
Our site visits include interviews with the nonprofit's stakeholders, Board, Staff and more, and the report that comes out of this face-to-face encounter is a major step toward becoming a finalist for the grant awards. This year, we add the Catalyst Grant to our site visits!
Impact Austin is proud to announce the site visit organization and program/projects for 2015.
