Assistance League of Austin’s philanthropic programs are funded through the generosity of many. We are grateful for your ongoing support. Because we are an all-volunteer organization with no paid employees, you can be assured that your contributions will go directly to someone in the Austin community who needs and deserves it. Funds used to finance member-only activities are derived solely from member dues.

There are many ways you can support our work: through donations, endowments, planned giving, grants and memorials.

Endowment Fund

  • 14 years ago, ALA was fortunate to be selected as one of 10 area nonprofits to receive a challenge grant from Austin Community Foundation. Their 1-4 matching program provided us with $20,000 over four years with our $80,000 in funding.
  • Today, that fund totals more than $200,000. The fund and its interest dollars will serve ALA into the future.
  • We welcome your contributions.
