S2E17 Giving Tuesday 2021: A Conversation with Alyssa Clark from YNPN Austin

AustinParksFoundationBlog Page

With Giving Tuesday happening on November 30th, we thought it would be a great time to talk with the President of YNPN Austin, Alyssa Clark! Grant spoke with Alyssa about young donors and trends they’re seeing in the way people give their time, money, and expertise in Austin, TX.

We talk about the networking and professional development opportunities that YNPN offers to young non-profit professionals. Alyssa also gives some advice on how anyone can engage with local organizations that are doing work that speaks to them. You can learn more about YNPN’s mission and programs at ynpnaustin.org.

Whether you’re listening to this on Giving Tuesday or any old day, it’s always a great time to learn about how you can help non-profits in Austin, TX. If you’d like to support Austin Parks Foundation, head to austinparks.org to see how you can help local parks, trails and green spaces.
