You've lived here. You've worked here. You are part of Austin's past and present. By opening an endowed fund with the Foundation, you can invest in our community's future. Your gift can grow and benefit Austin forever.
How it works
- When you open your fund at the Foundation with the intention of donating $5,000 or more in the coming years, you can choose to endow it. You can always continue to give to your fund.
- If you already have a fund at the Foundation, you can choose to endow it whenever you reach a $5,000 balance or express your intention to do so in the coming years.
- The principal of your endowed fund is never spent, and it can grow over time to generate an increasing stream of funding devoted to your the causes you're passionate about.
- Earnings are used to make grants that meet community needs. Your gift--and all future income from your gift--is a permanent source of community funding that makes good works possible, forever.
