Austin Community Foundation announced today a $50,000 grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation to the Hispanic Impact Fund to support workforce development and entrepreneurism for Hispanic individuals and families in Central Texas.
2020 – We believe Austin belongs to all of us and everyone deserves opportunity. With this guiding principle, Austin Community Foundation has developed a strategic plan that will guide our work over the next five years.
In 1999, Dr. Jordan suggested the creation of the Jordan Award to recognize individual(s) for volunteerism by means of a grant to the organization in which they volunteered. The award has evolved over the years. Today, we invite nonprofits to apply for the Jordan Award, rather than nominating individuals.
March 2019 – the Foundation convened nonprofit, local government and philanthropic leaders for a conversation on the wealth divide in Austin following the release of a new report, in partnership with Prosperity Now and JPMorgan Chase.
