All Grant Review Committees are deep into their application review processes. Here are updates of their work.
As of the December 12 deadline, Impact Austin had received 89 Letters of Inquiry for three Program Grants of $100,000 each. From these, 18 organizations were invited on February 1 to submit full proposals in the areas of Community, Education, or Health & Well-Being. Those applications are now under deep-dive review. Read HERE for more information about the 18 organizations and their programs being reviewed for funding.
Semi-finalists will be determined by late March, and mid-April site visits will be scheduled for those organizations.
On December 12, Impact Austin received 28 full proposal requests for the $100,000 Catalyst Grant. After first-round reviews, seven organizations were selected for the next stage of review, which is still ongoing. By late March, semi-finalists in this category will be identified for mid-April site visits. Click HERE to see which nonprofits and programs are under consideration.
Our youth initiative Girls Giving Grants will award its largest grant ever this year: $8,800. They received 42 applications for funding on November 9, and seven semi-finalists were identified in January. g3 made group presentations to advocate for each of the seven semi-finalists, and they chose their two finalists in early February. Site visits will be made in April and the grantee selected that same month.
Finalists for the g3 grant are Big Love Cancer Care and The Refuge for DMST (Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking). Read more in our Newsroom.
