A Community of Givers

Every day our community of givers makes our city better though learning, leading, strategic grantmaking, local impact investment and philanthropic collaboration.

What does it mean to be part of a community of givers? It means the convenience of 24/7 online access to your fund as well as personalized access to local experts on philanthropy, investment and community needs and opportunities.

Last year more than 1,000 people took part in educational experiences we curated on topics like:

Give locally

Having a fund with us means we're a trusted partner for your charitable work. You gain the unique opportunity to connect with the most pressing needs of local nonprofits working in the impact areas that you care about. How does it work? First, tell us what you're passionate about.  Then we'll send you a quarterly summary of nonprofit organizations' best ideas on how they can improve the quality of life for Central Texans. Give with confidence, knowing our expert staff has reviewed  the proposals. Give a little or a lot--or pass.  Learn more
