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!

Hogg Foundation for Mental Health

Rick Ybarra, program officer for the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health will describe the foundation's recent update of vision, mission, core values and strategic plan. He will talk about their recent grant initiatives which support the strategic plan and how they differ from past grants - particularly in the encouragement of collaborative community efforts. Rick will be joined by Charley Scarborough, of Scarborough & Associates, LLC, Philanthropy Consulting, to describe another, new initiative as part of the foundation’s efforts; Grant Coaching. Charley has partnered with the Hogg Foundation to provide individual grant coaching to over 100 individual organizations in their proposal process in the past year. Join Rick and Charley for an informal discussion about the Hogg Foundation’s efforts to support mental health and well-being in Texas, as they embrace values toward greater diversity, equity, inclusion and collaboration.
