Dear Austin Young Chamber Members,
As 2019 comes to a close, we wanted to thank you for being instrumental in helping the Austin Young Chamber Foundation (AYCF) continue to make an impact and give back to our community. Through our donor’s generosity, AYCF has been able to support great causes this year. In February, we participated in the 2nd Annual AYC LEAD Summit, a full day of critical development for young professional leaders in our community. At the Summit, three community leaders were honored with the AYC ChangeMaker Award. In support of paying it forward, a special grant from our Austin Young Chamber Foundation was given to a 501c3 of each ChangeMaker’s choice.
We were thrilled to award $500 grants to:
Following the success of the summit, the AYCF continued to focus on supporting non-profits that:
- Remove barriers to employment
- Impact individuals in the early workforce stage
- Increase employability of underserved populations

Thank you again for making a difference! On behalf of the Austin Young Chamber Foundation, we wish you a wonderful close to 2019 and an even better start to 2020.
I bid you farewell as the Austin Young Chamber Foundation Chair, it truly has been an honor to serve you in this capacity. I look forward to seeing all the great work continued in the capable hands of incoming AYCF Chair, Billy Moyer.
We hope you’ll continue along this journey with us as we model the power of collective giving and foster a young professional workforce that pays it forward.
