Take the Pledge
A recent study reports that over the next 50 years, the transfer of wealth from one generation to another in the Austin region will create a unique opportunity. In the coming decade alone, $26 billion will pass hands in Austin. This transfer of wealth is the largest under-developed financial resource in our community.
If just 5% of these assets were donated to local charities, that means $1.3 billion would be given to improve our community. If these funds were instead donated to an endowment, then $65.4 million in new grants would go to local causes every year.
You can be part of a giving revolution.
Imagine: if everyone committed to give 5% of their assets to a local charity or charities, we could take advantage of this unique opportunity. The Austin Giving Pledge recognizes people who have donated or plan to donate at least 5% of their assets to local charities. Join your friends and neighbors and pledge now to donate at least 5% of your assets to one or more local charities.
