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.
