Austin Gives Awards
Each year we invite the community to nominate businesses that do an outstanding job of giving back to our Central Texas community. Nominees will be judged by community leaders and the businesses making the biggest impact in our community will be recognized at the Austin Gives awards.
2023 Austin Gives Awards Nominations Are Now Open Through June 5!
Finalists will be acknowledged at the Austin Gives Awards in late August. We look forward to honoring businesses that exemplify philanthropy as a key part of their business model. Be a part of something bigger, and let's celebrate the power of giving back!
