All Together ATX awards first round of grants

Tuesday, April 21, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

All Together ATX has announced the recipients of its first round of grants. The grants, which total $1.8 million, will be split among 97 nonprofits working in Central Texas to support those impacted by Covid-19. The All Together ATX fund, which is a partnership between United Way for Greater Austin and Austin Community Foundation, has raised almost $5 million since March 27. “In this time of uncertainty, it’s incredible to witness our community come together and rise to the challenge of supporting our nonprofit sector and the individuals they serve,” said Mike Nellis, CEO of Austin Community Foundation, in a statement to the press. “Thanks to this generosity, we are able to quickly deploy substantial funding to organizations helping those struggling to make rent, put food on the table or get proper medical care. However, these initial grants only scratch the surface of the level of support our community will need to fully recover from this pandemic, which is why we will continue to fundraise and distribute additional funding.” A list of nonprofits that received grants, and their plans to reinvest the money, is embedded below. Applications for round two of funding will open this summer.
