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!

Featured Speaker: 
Webber Family Foundation
 
Our featured speaker for July is Courtney Horm with the Webber Family Foundation.

Courtney is the Program Manager at the Webber Family Foundation. In her role, she oversees the Foundation’s education grants portfolio for Austin, TX and Washington, DC.
Prior to joining the Foundation in 2017, she worked in development and fundraising positions at the Central Texas Food Bank, Any Baby Can, and the American Red Cross. During this time, she volunteered for the Association of Fundraising Professionals on the Philanthropy Day Committee and on the board of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network as the Professional Development Chair. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, Courtney worked in state government for four years, most recently for a state-wide elected official, prior to joining the local nonprofit sector. In order to deepen her knowledge of our community, she has been a participant of the Austin CityWorks Academy, Citizen Police Academy, and the Austin ISD’s UpClose program.

Courtney will discuss the Webber Family Foundation’s grant guidelines, focus areas, and application process. She will also cover the foundation’s current funding priorities and community collaboratives. In addition, she will share the most important things she’s learned so far in her transition from a fundraising to a philanthropy professional. Feel free to bring questions!
