Lo­cal women’s phi­lan­thropy group Im­pact Austin con­tin­ues to seek new mem­bers be­fore the end of the year to meet its mem­ber­ship goal of 500 women.

The group will give five $100,000 grants to non­prof­its if it signs up 500 mem­bers by Dec. 31.

“We restart our mem­ber­ship drive ev­ery year to sign new mem­bers, so this is a very im­por­tant part of our success in help­ing us reach our goal of con­tin­u­ing to give five area non­prof­its at least $100,000 each and ev­ery year,” Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Elizabeth Fitzger­ald said in a state­ment.

Since its cre­ation in 2004, Im­pact Austin has given 35 grants to­tal­ing $3.67 mil­lion to lo­cal groups in the Austin area.
