Grant Opportunities

The Austin Community Foundation makes grants to improve the quality of life for everyone in our community.

Our Community Grant Program

Our Community Grant Program is the central portal for applying for and receiving grant funds from the Foundation. We provide grants to nonprofits working in our eight Community Impact Areas. Applications are accepted year-around through our online application. By matching nonprofit grant requests to the interests and resources of our funds and fund holders, we ensure your request is funded at the highest level possible so you can focus on doing good. Apply now.
