Austin Community Foundation Women’s Fund gives $400,000 in grants


The Women’s Fund of the Austin Community Foundation will be giving $400,000 in grants to 20 local nonprofits organizations. 

The grants are distributed in amounts between $10,000 to $40,000 and are unrestricted funds for the organizations’ general operating funds. The organizations were chosen because they focus on housing, child care, education, women’s health and unintended pregnancy prevention. 

The Women’s Fund is a giving network of individuals and corporations that wish to invest in the economic security of women in Central Texas. Since 2004, it has given more than $2 million to more than 80 organizations. 

Last fall, the Women’s Fund changed the way organizations apply and are considered for funding, in order to make the grant application easier to fill out, include community input, work on implicit bias in decision making and reach a more diverse group of organizations.
