Annual Give Back Charity Event
Each spring, in honor of Austin Family Counseling serving the Austin community for another year, AFC hosts a celebratory charity event to raise proceeds to donate to one local, non-profit organization that provides community support and services to empower individuals in the greater Austin community. Since 2015, AFC’s annual charity events have raised over $6,500 in total monetary proceeds that have been directly donated to local organizations such as Helping Hand Home for Children, Communities in Schools of Central Texas, Austin Children’s Shelter and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas.
For our 2019 Give Back Event, 100% of the proceeds were donated directly to Out Youth – an organization that serves the Central Texas LGBTQ+ youth and their allies with programs and services to ensure these promising young people develop into happy, healthy and successful adults. Out Youth promotes the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of sexual and gender minority youth, so they can openly and safely explore and affirm their identities. We raised over $1,600 in proceeds!
The recipient of our 2020 Give Back Event donations will be CASA of Travis County who will receive 100% of all the proceeds! Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Travis County is an organization that educates and empowers diverse community volunteers who ensure each child’s needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system. Their mission is to promote and protect the best interest of children who have been abused or neglected, by training volunteers to advocate for them in courts, in schools and in our community to help them find safe, permanent and loving homes.
How do we raise the funds to donate to these phenomenal non-profits? It’s through generous donations made by individuals like you who want to make a difference in supporting the greater Austin community!
