Review this Business/Team







The heart and soul of A Glimmer of Hope Austin is the love and compassion it has for young people and senior adults who suffer from exclusion, social injustice, neglect, abandonment and educational disadvantages.


The foundation is committed to improving their lives by supporting initiatives that address imbalances in the areas of health care, education, life skills, fine arts, safety and basic needs.


It achieves this by supporting - and working through - what it calls Angels in the Community.


These angels have a passion to serve the disenfranchised and are working to make a positive difference in Austin through new and imaginative grassroots projects that empower youth and support seniors in East and South Austin.


In 2004, the foundation committed $5 million towards supporting local programs over the ensuing 10 years. To date, it has funded more than 70 projects around the city that have had a direct impact in the lives of thousands of people.


Providing support to programs that improve the quality of life for seniors is a new area of focus for the foundation and an additional $250,000 was committed to this directive in 2008.


A Glimmer of Hope Austin’s impact has been such that within three years of its launch, the foundation was named the city’s Outstanding Philanthropic Foundation of the Year for 2006 by Austin chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. This prestigious award annually goes to the charitable organization that has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the Greater Austin community.


As a result of the foundation’s efforts, lives have been changed and hope and opportunity continues to be shared with disadvantaged children and seniors throughout the city.



One hundred percent promise 

All of A Glimmer of Hope's operating costs are covered by income arising from its endowment so the foundation is able to assure donors that 100 percent of every donation will get through to the programs that are making a difference in the lives of some of Austin’s most disadvantaged young people.
