Who We Are

The Grant Professional Association (GPA) is a nonprofit membership association that builds and supports an international community of grant professionals committed to serving the greater public good.

Our chapter of GPA represents Austin and the Central Texas area. We meet once a month to hear from local grant makers, continue our professional development, and discuss issues specific to the grant professional community. Come and join us at our next meeting!

Join us for our first-ever Central Texas Funders Forum: Virtual Edition! with 3 half days (9am-12pm) of learning, networking, and idea-sharing October 5th - 7th with more than 200 Central Texas grants and fundraising professionals and dozens of area funders, presented by the Austin-Central Texas Chapter of the Grant Professionals Association and the ACC Center for Nonprofit Studies!

Our program includes in-depth panels with local funders, hands-on workshops, a keynote presentation by storytelling expert Bridget Gavaghan with the National Reframing Initiative, and our signature "Relationship Relays," which offer a chance for intimate, small-group conversations with area funders!
