Impact Austin has changed my life! I learned about my community, all the different needs and opportunities to make a difference, and the wonderful nonprofits working here. Through participating in grant review committees, I learned how to be an intentional, thoughtful, responsible donor. I've always given money, but often didn't know how my money was being used. Now my eyes have been opened to how important it is to put my money to work effectively in my community. Impact Austin has empowered me as a donor.

When I was first invited to contribute $1000 along with 100 other women to award a $100,000 grant to a non-profit I thought to my self, "good luck with that!" I didn't participate the first year because I didn't think it was possible. I have now participated for the past 5 years in one of the most effective and organized organizations on the planet! Each year I have participated on a subcommittee to review the grant applicants for a specific category. I have learned so much about the numerous organizations providing for the needs of the community. I have seen the impact of how our small contribution can be combined to make a large contribution that truly changes the face of our community. The organizational structure, procedures at all levels and the dedication of the women involved is superior. After each season, every aspect of the organization is reviewed, improved and implemented based on feedback of the women involved. I truly believe every community in the country has the capability to implement this amazing successful program.

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.

Impact Austin is a collective giving organization in Austin, Texas that empowers our members to be true philanthropists. 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.

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!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

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.
