CBA has been a major supporter of a number of Austin Charities over the years. Between 2000 and 2021, we contributed over $935k!
The Austin Angels mission is to walk alongside children, youth, and families in the foster care community by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship. Austin Angels matches volunteers to families and youth on our waitlist. Volunteers commit to a full year serving a family or youth. Love Box volunteers deliver "love boxes" with items tailored to the family's needs, bring dinner, plan playdates, provide respite care, or simply spend time with a family: building relationships with the child in foster care and the other family members. This program provides both financial and emotional support to the whole family unit.
The effort to break generational cycles of poverty for a family must start early and it has been the mission of Mainspring Schools since 1941 to give Austin children and their parents the tools that they need to succeed in school and life. For children ages 0-5, Mainspring ensures a strong foundation for life through 1) high-quality early childhood education, 2) health and nutrition, and 3) comprehensive family services.
