Women control more than 60 percent of all personal wealth in the U.S. and this proportion will grow steadily as women continue to out number men at universities and excel in business and as entrepreneurs. Foundations like Impact Austin are critical in our community in that they educate and provide philanthropic access to women of all ages, which has traditionally been a male dominated space.

I became aware of Impact Austin through my friendship with the founder. In 2010, I joined this collective giving circle to learn about civic challenges in Austin TX and meet some like-minded women. Through participation in their annual Discovery Day and the grant-making process, I am better prepared to apply my talents toward improving the lives of others in my community.

It is run and managed by an amazingly brilliant and committed group of women who work tirelessly to ensure our organization makes a huge impact in our community. By pooling our money the women of Impact Austin are able to make affect real change in our community and see our money at work, first hand, in our city.

When I attended a luncheon for one of the organizations we provided a grant for and saw the faces of the people helped by the program we funded.

I was introduced to the founder through a mutual friend and once I heard the story of the organization and mission, it was an easy decision to join. The three most important aspects of the organization for me are: 1. All of our donations are pooled to help the community in significant ways through large grants 2. Impact Austin is run professionally so that everything we do is done with excellence ... and we maintain this excellence through continuous learning and staying on top of trends in philanthropy 3. It is an absolute joy to work among such a caring and committed group of women who are share our values and are intent on seeing positive change in the community. I have learned SO much ... about philanthropy, about our community's issues, about myself ... and have met the most amazing women, many who have become great friends. What a fabulous organization!

I learned about Impact Austin shortly after I had my 4th baby and was just retiring from my profession as an attorney. Becoming involved gave me an opportunity to grow into the next stage of my career -- being a philanthropist. Through Impact Austin, I learned so much about our nonprofit community, about grant-making, and about giving money. I became connected with a network of women who were like-minded. There were career women, "stay at home" moms and retired women. Words cannot express how much Impact Austin has given me -- wonderful friendships, an education, and a spirit of philanthropy that I will pass on to my children.

I love being part of a women's philanthropy club where we get to give away over half a million dollars every year. We give grants of $100k+ to Austin area non-profits in the categories of Culture, Education, Environment, Family, and Health & Wellness. This is a great way to learn about new non-profits in the area. Every year, I add new ones to my donation list!

seeing the non-profits who won the awards grow and flourish in the community. I got to be there for the grant award ceremony last year. Seeing the face of the Executive Director of the non-profit who won was an awesome experience.
