Impact Austin will participate with #AmplifyATX to support our youth initiative Girls Giving Grants (g3), which trains and inspires girls in grades 8-12 to start their philanthropic journeys. See our Amplify Austin site and read how you can support our #AmplifyATX effort HERE.
Donations generated through Amplify Austin 2019 will fund g3 scholarships for girls who might otherwise be unable to participate, along with supporting g3’s general operations, including grants administration software and educational materials.
Our g3 girls are deep into their 2019 grantmaking work. They’ve each contributed $100 toward a 2019 grant and considered 42 applications for projects serving youth. The girls narrowed the field to 7 semi-finalists. Seven teams then advocate for the semi-finalists to the entire membership, and two finalists are chosen for site visits.
Since 2006, g3 has awarded $71,300 to greater Austin nonprofit organizations. Their 2019 grant will bring their grantmaking total over $80,000.
