Individual Giving | Contribute to the future of leadership for Greater Austin.

Be a part of Leadership Austin’s commitment to developing strong leaders for the future of Greater Austin. As an alum or program participant who values your Leadership Austin experience and wants to provide similar opportunities for others, your support ensures we can continue providing our community with the leaders it deserves.

Austin is only as strong as its leaders—in business, government, community, and neighborhoods—and your contribution supports the people who, just like you, are committed to a strong Austin. Help pay if forward and consider a gift for our community leaders.

Alumni Donation

Being a part of Leadership Austin means you have learned skills and made connections that helped position you for success. As a graduate of the Essential or Emerge program, you are already part of the alumni family. Now, consider a donation in support of Leadership Austin and the leaders realizing their civic potential through our programs each year.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies support their employees’ desire to give back to the community by offering a corporate donation match program. Through this program, your employer—or its charitable foundation—matches your contribution and your gift to Leadership Austin is multiplied. Contact your human resources department to learn if your employer grants matching gifts. Contact us if Leadership Austin can encourage a matching program in your organization.


As Austin grows—and more applicants committed to civic responsibility apply for our Essential and Emerge programs—it is important to ensure that participants continue to reflect the quality and diversity that Austin offers. It is a commitment of Leadership Austin that applicants accepted into Essential and Emerge not have their participation limited due to cost. Read more
