Soccer 4ATX

Friday, April 19, 2019 by Chad Swiatecki

The professional soccer team that will play in a new stadium built on city property in North Austin has created a philanthropic organization that will fund charitable efforts in the Austin area. 4ATX Foundation was launched with a $1 million grant from the family of Anthony Precourt, chairman and CEO of the Austin FC soccer team that will begin play as a Major League Soccer franchise in 2021. The foundation’s area of focus will include youth health and wellness and efforts that support “the cultural and lifestyle vibrancy of Austin.” Local business and community leaders are currently being sought and screened for membership on the foundation’s board of directors. 4ATX is among the groups that have contributed to Waterloo Terrace, the affordable housing project from Foundation Communities located off Mopac Expressway near St. David’s North Austin Medical Center. That project is scheduled to break ground on April 24.
