Funder Focus: Connect with Texas Pride Impact Fund

Funder Focus Series

Gain insights from and interact with Texas Pride Impact Funds (TPIF), a statewide LGBTQ+ community foundation. Members of the TPIF team will describe the organization’s work to create equitable opportunities and to provide grant funding that serves and enriches the lives of LGBTQ+ Texans. Sign up to learn more about their work and their upcoming grant cycle.

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.
