Impact Austin's 2014
Grants Will Total $500,000
Since we made our goal of 500 members for the 2014 grant awards, we will be extending five $100,000 grants to five different Austin-area nonprofits this June, which will bring our eleven-year total to over $4.6 million!
Congratulations to member Stefanie Cavanaugh, who won our Each One Bring One raffle for referring a new member to Impact Austin for the 2014 grant year. Stefanie won five hours of personal organizing with Jeff Mallon, a $250 value. Thanks so much to Stefanie, and to each and every one of you who helped us reach our goal!
30 Nonprofits Invited to Submit Grant Applications
Our 130 hardworking Focus Area Committee (FAC) members have been busy the past 3 weeks reading, researching and analyzing the 114 Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) received by Impact Austin this year. After much discussion and careful consideration, we have invited 30 organizations to submit full grant applications (see list by committee below). Grant applications are due on February 20th at 6:00pm and the FACs will be back to work reviewing those the last week of February.
