A Glimmer of Hope Austin
Grants of up to $20,000 to Central Texas nonprofit organizations to improve the lives of young people (up to age 25) and senior citizens (age 60 and up). Programs should meet the needs of individuals who suffer from neglect, social injustice, exclusion, educational disadvantages, and abandonment. Funding is intended to provide social seed capital for new and innovative projects.
The Foundation funds projects that provide services to young people and seniors residing primarily in disadvantaged areas of Central Texas. A Glimmer of Hope Austin only considers projects that will continue to benefit the community after the Foundation's initial investment.
Programs for youth should focus on one or more of the following focus areas: education, life skills and mentoring, health and nutrition, the arts, and sports.
