Stand With Austin Fund is open for business

Monday, March 30, 2020 by Tai Moses

Austin Community Foundation is now seeking grant applications for the Stand With Austin Fund, one of several fundraising campaigns in Austin established to provide a source of support for the nonprofits that are assisting individuals and small businesses impacted by the cancellation of South by Southwest. “Since the cancellation of SXSW, our community has come together – both individual donors and businesses – to support the Stand With Austin Fund and lessen the economic hardships many in the creative and service industries are now facing,” said Mike Nellis, the foundation’s chief executive officer. “We invite nonprofit organizations serving individuals and small businesses impacted to apply for this funding so that some measure of relief is provided to those in greatest need.” Approximately $400,000 in funding is available to Austin-area nonprofits that support the music and creative, service and bar, and hospitality industries.
