2020 Social Innovation Grant

In November 2020, Impact Austin will award the organization’s second Social Innovation Grant. Similar to last year, this will fund a collaborative focused on advancing equity for women and/or girls of color in the Greater Austin Area.


Proposals for the Social Innovation Grant will be solicited and evaluated from July to October. This year, the Social Innovation Grant is a 1-year, restricted grant for $40,000. The new community partner will be chosen in early November by a vote with Impact Austin’s full membership.


The 2020 Social Innovation Grant Application will open on July 22, 2020 and a virtual information session will be held for prospective applicants. We highly encourage all interested organizations to register and attend.
