Impact Austin is kicking off the Philanthropy Education initiative that you heard about in our current Strategic Plan (Stepping Up to Meet Our Future) in a big way…Introducing IMPACT-edu!
IMPACT-edu is the new Impact Austin Committee devoted to providing Philanthropy Education for members. We will be piloting events this year that are designed to provide members with opportunities to develop skills that support their philanthropic aims.
Our mission is to provide education that empowers every member of Impact Austin with the knowledge and confidence to fulfill her philanthropic potential, thereby enhancing this organization's collective contribution to our community. The way this mission becomes a reality, and provides meaningful and interesting (and fun!) information for you is part of our challenge this coming year.
Your ideas are important to us, so let us know if you want to share your own philanthropic experience and skills with other members, or if you are interested in volunteering some time with the IMPACT-edu Committee. We welcome your suggestions for topics and recommendations of relevant speakers you have heard, as well.
