Did you know that according to a study done by The Chronicle of Philanthropy in 2012, Austin is ranked 32nd out of the 50 largest cities in the nation in per capita charitable giving? This is a big improvement over our ranking at the beginning of the 21st century when we ranked 48, but there is still a lot of room for growth!

Austin is a vibrant city with a personality all its own. Central Texans are passionate, driven, and generous volunteers of their time and talent. But that’s not enough. The biggest problem facing Austin Nonprofits is there is not enough money.

Our community is well known for cherishing its environment and local businesses, its time to nurture our home-grown nonprofits in the same way!

We depend on our nonprofits to meet so many of the Austin's most basic needs; but the shortage of funds for these organizations is creating large gaps in services.

This is where I Live Here, I Give Here steps in. Our main purpose is to connect people like YOU with the issues you care about and the Nonprofits that support them.

I Live Here, I Give Here is proud of the work we have accomplished since our launch in 2007. We connect the people of Austin with the causes they care about.

We partner with nonprofit groups so they can be more accessible to you. We spotlight specific needs in Austin every month to let you know how you can help.

See Jane Give! ® is the ultimate ladies’ night for philanthropy!

See Jane Give!® is the perfect place to start your own philanthropic journey or to step it up a notch.

Each See Jane Give!® evening begins with a cocktail hour, allowing you to network with other professionals interested in giving back to the community. This exchange is followed by a seated dinner where the evening’s keynote speaker shares her inspiration for getting involved in the community. After the speaker finishes, each table holds its own discussion about the best ways to strategically blend giving into everyday life. We place a Mentor, an accomplished professional, at each table, to share her journey as a philanthropist and to guide debate. 

Did You Know… 50% of women who speak with a Philanthropy Mentor report that they plan to increase their giving? Learn how to create a giving plan today!

Our See Jane Give!® 2013 was held at The Headliners Club in Austin, Texas on April 17, 2013. We were thrilled to have co-chairs Jackie Mata & Elsa Decker, and the accomplished Sylvia Acevedo as our inspiring Keynote Speaker. Get a glimpse of the event here!
