Austin continues to attract the brightest and most cause-focused young professionals, and one of the best ways to channel that energy is through our diverse network of young professional organizations. Each of these organizations offers opportunities to exchange professional knowledge but also work together to benefit and impact social needs.

Below is our list of philanthropic professional organizations or young professional organizations (YPOs) in Austin.

Some of these organizations are affiliated directly with an Austin nonprofit while others are professional organizations or associations with a philanthropic element to their mission.

Please keep in mind that the activities and even existence of each of the organizations changes from time to time. In most cases, you can contact the nonprofit’s fundraising or development executive to learn more.

  1. We are in the super grassroots of starting a nonprofit in Austin. We assemble and distribute backpacks filled with survival essentials to the homeless community. The name is Macpack. Thank you!

  2. Association of Fundraising Professionals – Austin Chapter
    Grantwriters of Austin (not sure if that is their exact name)

  3. Hi, all! Again, thank you for your amendments. I think Impact Austin falls under the “giving circle” category rather than the professional organizations. Most of the professional organizations I was aiming for don’t have a grants process. But Sustainable Foodies, Austin Symphony BATS… those are great additions.
