The Austin Alpha Foundation (AAF) was formed in 1983 as a non-profit 501C(3) organization, which takes advantage of the opportunity to address many of the prevailing and emerging issues faced by the African American and minority residents of the Austin area. The non-profit status of the foundation provides the community with opportunities to mitigate these disadvantages while making tax-deductible contributions toward the development, expansion, and evaluation of the Foundation’s public service efforts. With the organizational goal of promoting scholarship and education for youth of the Austin and surrounding areas, AAF has awarded scholarships to college-bound high school seniors for over thirty years. In addition, AAF provides support for community-based organizations, contributions to the arts and promotion of educational programs. These endeavors are supported by member volunteer fundraising and solicitation of individual and corporate contributions. Clcik: Application
