A Legacy of Giving

A Legacy of Giving's mission is to empower children through philanthropy education and youth philanthropy programs to become more engaged in improving their communities and their world. The mission is based on the belief that if children learn to be compassionate problem-solvers while young, they will continue to be engaged in their communities as adults. The Legacy program is designed to target needs in the community and sponsor projects championed by students, providing the means for e students to personally embrace philanthropy as an integral part of their lives. Our aspiration is for all students to develop empathy for others while increasing their own self-esteem.

A World For Children

Every minute of every day, Texas children fall victim at the hands of their parents. They are abused, neglected, and mistreated in ways that the general public cannot begin to imagine. The children enter the doors of A World For Children foster homes with terror, uncertainty, physical scars, and emotional trauma. A World For Children's foster parents, along with the 24-hour support of A World For Children's staff, spend every day changing uncertainty into undying stability, mending physical injuries, and providing in-depth treatment for emotional trauma. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency, A World For Children contracts with and is licensed by the State of Texas to provide foster and foster-to-adopt services for abused and neglected children across the State. At A World For Children, we pride ourselves on being more than simply a corporation-we're one big extended family.

ACCESS to Learning, Inc

In 2016-2017 school year, ACCESS to Learning, Inc. has offered Field Trip Scholarships for $200. each to 10 Austin-Area schools. We hope, through Amplify Austin 2017, we can double the Field Trip Scholarships to offer 20 field trips for the 2017-2018 school year. Our organization believes strongly that collaboration between schools and cultural and educational sites provide an excellent opportunity for learning. Through student field trips, that are curriculum-based, students are provided experiential learning lessons which will give students increased opportunities to enhance their learning beyond the classroom. Through further donations, ACCESS to Learning, Inc, will be able to provide more opportunities to promote and facilitate more opportunities for experiential learning at cultural and educational sites through field trips, traveling exhibits to schools and solar classroom lessons, for teachers and their students. Thank you for your support of ACCESS to Learning, Inc. Dr. Donna Love Vliet Founder/Director ACCESS to Learning, Inc.

AHB Community School

School + Home Connection Because AHB is a part-time school, the connection between learning done in the classroom and learning done outside of the school day is a key aspect of each student's educational experience. To that end, AHB teachers work with students and parents to create Projects and Practice that are relevant, meaningful, and appropriate for each child's ability. Such projects and practice are done at school and at home, with and without adult guidance, and are accompanied with support from the teachers to ensure that students and parents can be successful. Projects and Practice work is provided and assigned as necessary throughout the week, and is often to be returned after the long weekend. Assignments are varied by classroom and by the specific skills that students are tackling in a given quarter. Students should be able to complete their Projects and Practice within a reasonable amount of time. Ongoing reading and math skill development are a natural part of the growth of a lifelong learner and are expected to be a normal part of home routines beyond the Projects and Practice. Educational research (along with AHB's own experience) suggests that daily minimums of reading and math practice help keep students progressing through their development. Parents and students are asked to communicate with teachers if they consistently require more time than expected to complete their work, or if they have any other questions about the amount and/or quality of the assignments. Because of the shorter amount of time in school, Projects and Practice are important to each student's success. Parents must commit to ensuring that their child is completing Projects and Practice and that their work is on-time, neat, complete, and representative of appropriate effort. Parent Life The beauty of a community school is that the community extends beyond the classroom. Many families at AHB forge bonds of friendship that last far beyond the Elementary and Middle Years that their kids are in school. We provide ample opportunities for families and parents to connect with each other throughout our school year. Family Involvement At AHB Community School, one thing you will often see is parents and families interacting with students, teachers, administration, and even our broader community. Families are always welcome to find a place and a way to actively participate in their child's education. We offer several events each year where we formally gather as a community and celebrate. Portfolios on Parade (or POP) is an inspiring showcase of the schoolwork and projects that students have worked on throughout the semester. For one day at the end of each semester, families, students, teachers, and administration all gather for performances and tours through each classroom where students proudly discuss their work from the past semester. We often say that Portfolios on Parade is the "magic" of AHB - the chance to see what inspired learning looks like in the most direct way. Additional community opportunities include Around The World (an exciting all-school potluck inspired by a chosen country, with authentic foods, art activities, dances, games, and speakers from the chosen country), Parent Support Nights, and Parent Coffees. We also have additional academic events that parents attend as they are able - Science Fair, Literacy Day, and performances at the end of various classes. Service Jobs Each family is asked to contribute to the operation of AHB Community School by signing up for a service job. By having each family pitch in a small amount of volunteer work throughout the school year, we are able to keep tuition costs low. We offer a wide range of jobs that match a variety of interests and skills - from gardener, to chaperone, to IT support. Besides allowing the school to allocate more funds directly toward educating its students, service jobs help us model the act of service to our own children. Fundraising Our fundraising model evolved from our founder, Georgie Georgakis, who felt that every fundraiser should be a FUNdraiser. We hold several exciting events each year - from our annual Skate Party to community-sponsored shopping and dining events to our signature fundraiser, the Austin Homebrew Festival. We encourage all families to participate in these events at a level that feels comfortable. A list of our upcoming fundraisers and events is available on the Support Us page. Students play a critical role in our fundraising efforts as well, selling their wares at Winter Faire and collecting pledges in the spring for our annual Bowl-a-Thon! As our fundraising efforts grow, we are able to fund our scholarship program at higher and higher levels, thus bringing our progressive educational model to a wider population of students. Follow Us!

Asian Family Support Services of Austin

AFSSA proudly serves immigrant and refugee survivors of violence that come to us from the Asian diaspora. As increasing geopolitical conflict drives more people from their homelands, we will serve them also. Beginning in 1992, we've been the steward of thousands of stories from the Asian community. Amongst the stories of tragedy, sexual assault, and domestic violence, we also have the privilege of seeing unbelievable resilience, strength, and hope. Our clients are amazing, strong women and children who have come to AFSSA seeking freedom from violence and a better life. Given the geo-political uncertainty of 2017, we expect a growing number of sexual assault survivors accessing our services. In anticipation, we are mobilizing our staff and the community, rolling up our sleeves to shore up some of our programs in the following ways: • Children who are exposed to violence need specialized services. We just hired a Child/Parent Advocate to provide the holistic, specialized support these children need to heal; • Survivors of sexual assault or domestic abuse need supportive advocates to accompany them to SANE nurse exams where injuries are documented and evidence of sexual assault is collected. We are building stronger community partner collaborations to immediately address the complex and time-sensitive needs of sexual assault survivors; • Survivor's needs are two-fold. They need the immediate crisis intervention and support services we offer, but for their long-term happiness and ability to provide for themselves and their families they need long-term supportive services. Our Economic Empowerment program offers basic life-skills services, job attainment, and education. Thanks to our new City of Austin partnership, we've been able to add additional staffing; and • Our Transitional Housing program will provide more safe homes for families getting back on their feet. These are just a few of the steps we're taking to better serve the citizens of Central Texas and ensure a safe and welcoming community. We hope you join us during Amplify Austin to offer continued support to families and individuals seeking freedom from violence. MORE ABOUT US AFSSA understands the diverse cultural and language needs of immigrant survivors, and offer ourselves as a resource for newly settled and established families seeking a path towards living in peace and safety. We are vigilant in providing trauma-informed programs that include therapeutic counseling for adults and children, advocacy, rape crisis services, legal advocacy, housing, and more. Always mindful of the multiple layers of trauma and possible re-traumatization that our clients' endure, we focus on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual effects of their experiences.

Austin Boxer Rescue

In 2016, Austin Boxer Rescue is proud to have surpassed 3500 adoptions since its inception in 2006. We also expanded our social media presence to include Instagram and Twitter allowing us to reach more supporters than ever, spreading our adoption and education message to even more far-reaching areas. Although we celebrate every dog we are able to save and are thankful for the opportunity to save the 388 boxers we adopted out in 2016, there were still so many dogs left behind that we were unable to help. Our goal this year is to continue to build and expand on our rescue network relationships reaching out to other boxer rescues to help save even more dogs and increase our adoptions to over 500. Fundraisers like Amplify Austin help us say YES to dogs in need and ensure that no adoptable boxer is left in a shelter to die alone.
