Application deadline announced for Austin Area Foundation nonprofit grants
Local nonprofits have until Sept. 1 to apply for grants from the Austin Area Foundation.
Last year, the foundation awarded $22,000 to area nonprofits to fund special projects, supplies or services to further their organization’s mission.
Jeff Baldus, executive director of the Austin Area Foundation, said these grants align directly with AAF’s mission, which is to “help people helping people” in a bigger way than usually possible.
“When you look at the projects and the causes that get funded, it is easy to see why we’re excited,” Baldus said. “That is what our community foundation is all about.”
Previous grant recipients include the Austin Area Commission for the Arts, Austin Color Guard, Matchbox Children’s Theater, Rachel’s Hope and St. Olaf BackPack Programs.
