Advancing Equity Across the Nonprofit Sector

On Amplify Austin Day 2022, in addition to maintaining our support for several hundred nonprofits across 20 cause categories, I Live Here I Give Here is elevating awareness and raising additional funding for key initiatives to advance equity. We are especially grateful to the following funders who have supported these initiatives as well:

The Black-Led Social Change Nonprofits Fund was created in partnership with the Black Leaders Collective, a group of 90 community leaders committed to advancing Black lives across the Central Texas community. More than $40,000 was raised for Black-Led nonprofit organizations, who are historically underfunded in spite of the daily transformative work they do across the community. This fund initiative was seeded by a local community leader, with contributions from the Shield-Ayres Foundation, Tito's Handmade Vodka, and Woollard Nichols & Associates.

For the second year, I Live Here I Give Here is proud to partner with The New Philanthropists (TNP) to introduce The TNP Challenge. Organizations that participate in both Amplify Austin Day and TNP's Board Matching Program will be eligible to receive an additional $20,000 pro-rata match thanks to H-E-B and Expedia Group.

To address disparities in the awareness and resources that drive fundraising, I Live Here I Give Here created a targeted fund for small-and medium-sized nonprofits, with budget sizes of less than $100,000 and between $100,001-$500,000, respectively. These organizations are eligible to receive an additional $20,500 pro-rata match thanks to Expedia Group, Reissa Foundation, K Friese + Associatesand Woollard Nichols & Associates.

The Reissa Foundation is sponsoring the Reissa Relay Prize to recognize collaboration among small- and medium-sizes nonprofits whose work and missions support at-risk children and vulnerable families. During the relay, nonprofit organizations will be selected by a peer organization to receive a $2,000 grant toward their fundraising campaign. A total of 10 prizes will be awarded. The foundation is also giving additional kick-starter grants to benefit all grassroots BIPOC-led organizations, with operating budgets of $100,000 or less.
