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.Learn more >
A New Entry, Inc.
On a daily basis, we are turning individuals away who are in desperate need of substance use treatment and/or Recovery supportive housing services. Our goal is to raise funds to assist us in providing services for those who may not have the resources to receive the service that can literally be lifesaving. Many of our clients and/or Veterans are battling dual diagnosis, homelessness and/or poverty, which is keeping them trapped in the cycle of addiction. Fundraising allows us to stop turning individuals away and start igniting hope, passion and purpose into their life so they can become active and productive members of the Austin Community. We are currently constructing a new women's treatment program both for Veterans and non-veterans that we hope to launch in the next 60-90 days. Funds donated will assist in the development of this program. Our long-term goal is to purchasing property in the Austin area in order to expand our services and allow us to provide varied services on one campus.Learn more >
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.Learn more >
Accessible Housing Austin!
AHA! is the only housing non-profit in Austin led by members of the disability community whose mission is to provide affordable, accessible, integrated (AAI) housing for low-income people with disabilities. We provide housing all over Austin to a diverse range of Austinites with disabilities, including adults and children with mobility impairments, visual impairment, chronic illness, and other physical and emotional disabilities. AHA! believes that we all deserve to live in homes that are not only safe and decent but that allow us to exercise our rights to independence and dignity, that we can afford, and that allow our children and us to participate in our neighborhoods. AHA! is working to construct AHA! at Briarcliff, a 27-unit apartment complex just north of the Mueller development. We recently rehabilitated a duplex in South Austin for two low-income households, one for a person with severe mobility impairments and the other for a veteran with traumatic brain injury, in partnership with the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation and the City of Austin. Additionally we are always working to expand the footprint of accessible, affordable, integrated housing by purchasing properties in all parts of the city.Learn more >
We inspire the love of learning in gifted students through our full-time pre-K through 8th grade school and through our summer enrichment program, Summer Wonders. Highly gifted students have very specific education needs. Without programs to keep them engaged, enthusiastic, and excited about learning, our best and brightest learners become at-risk students--students who have lost their love of learning, students who may even drop out of school entirely. Our specialized education program offers flexible groupings that combine strong, integrated academic curriculum with a global outlook.Learn more >

All Things Wild Rehabilitation
All Things Wild Rehabilitation serves Central Texas. Our dedicated volunteer wildlife rehabilitators work in their homes saving hundreds of orphaned babies and injured adults each year. With danger from traffic, construction, lawn mowers, floods, droughts, dogs, cats, and natural predators, wild animals, especially the babies, don't have much of a chance. Each year we buy over 500 lbs of special formula for orphaned babies. We also need implements, like nipples, syringes, tubes, and baby bottles, for around-the-clock feedings. Sick wild animals must have prescription medicine, usually purchased through a veterinarian. Injured adult animals and birds often require veterinarian services to repair broken limbs and wings. Additionally, our rehabilitators buy nutritious food and appropriate caging for all the wild birds and animals so that they are in prime condition when they are released back to the wild. ATW's dream for the future is to provide a better place for the animals and rehabilitators by building a center where we can help more animals, share the workload, and educate the public. We need land and the money to build a center. However, in the meantime, we will continue working out of our homes to give sick, injured, and orphaned wild birds and animals a second chance.Learn more >
