Funder Focus Series

Gain insights from and interact with Impact Austin, an Austin-based women’s collective giving organization that funds nonprofits that provide services in Bastrop, Hays, Travis, and/or Williamson counties. Karen McLinden, Grants Co-Chair, will describe Impact Austin’s philanthropic purpose and its strategic, high-impact grants awarded for Community, Education, Equity, and Health & Well-Being. Come and learn details about their upcoming grant opportunity and about what makes an inspiring grant proposal.

Series description

What do funders look for in a grant proposal: data, stories, both? What kinds of projects do foundations find inspiring? What choices do funders make in support of communities? Join us for Nonprofit Austin at ACC’s Funder Focus series to learn more about the funding and grantmaking process. Bring your questions for this exceptional opportunity to connect directly with those who make funding decisions that support nonprofit work.
