We’re changing it up this year with a two-night celebration! 

We’ll gather virtually on November 16, gain inspiration from the work of our 2020 Community Partners, award new Equity and Health & Well-Being Grants, and explore all the ways we can deepen our personal impact. On November 18, we step away from our computers, reconnect in-person, and celebrate outdoors at Zilker Lodge!

Highlights of last year’s Town Hall included the award of the Social Innovation Grant to a collaborative effort led by Black Mamas ATX and a thought-provoking keynote on Trust-Based Philanthropy: Bringing equity, humility, and transparency to correct the power imbalance between funders and grantees. View the full recording here or read the top ten takeaways!

Past Town Hall Meeting themes and speakers include: “Gritty Women” with Caroline Miller; “Imperfect Courage” with Jessica Honegger; and “The Changing Face of Philanthropy” with Andrea Pactor and Dianne Chipps Bailey.


Signature Events require the support of a diverse group of member-volunteers, sponsors, and guests, making these programs a shining example of the commitment and collaboration fostered by Impact Austin.
