Charitable solutions – We help donors simplify their giving and multiply their impact through charitable solutions and services. We also provide opportunities for donors to focus their impact, learning about and giving to the areas they care about most.
Community grantmaking – We believe that our greatest impact happens when we come together, pooling our resources. We offer our fundholders the opportunity to learn about and give to local nonprofits working in the impact areas that they care about the most. Since 1977, we’ve granted more than $300 million in Central Texas, across the country and globally, mostly through our donor-directed funds.
Impact investing – We are putting a greater portion of our assets to work doing social good in our community. We invest in areas like increasing access to capital and fair financial products and increasing the number of affordable housing units to help close the opportunity gap in Central Texas.
