Highland Lakes Legacy Fund
The Highland Lakes Legacy Fund, a family of funds at Austin Community Foundation, was created a decade ago to efficiently build on the Highland Lakes communities’ abundant strengths. With strong community-based support and leadership, the Legacy Fund connects local donors with local causes, invests assets for tomorrow and fosters philanthropy.
The Legacy Fund has grown to include 85 funds totaling more than $4 million and has provided grants to nonprofits serving the community and scholarships to students pursuing their educational goals.
Highland Lakes Legacy Fund welcomes Kathy Fletcher as Executive Director, effective January 1, 2017. A nearly lifelong resident of the Highland Lakes area, Fletcher has a wealth of leadership experience through her involvement at The Seriff Foundation, the Highland Lakes Health Partnership and many other local nonprofit organizations and projects.
