Thank you for your interest in supporting leadership, mentorship and adventure! There are many ways to donate to Explore Austin. Here are options to keep in mind when you’re ready to make a gift to our program:

  • You can give now, here.
  • Give from your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) – our legal name is “Austin Explore Inc” and our EIN is 20-5496495.
  • Wire transfer – avoid paying credit card fees.
  • Make a gift of stock and securities, which can yield excellent tax benefits.
  • Donate an IRA distribution to lower your taxable income – a QCS permits those 70 ½ and older to donate directly from an IRA instead of taking an RMD.
  • Check on your workplace matching – many companies have special matches, so visit with your HR department.
