We are privileged to welcome the support of community members who wish to host a third party event to benefit Caritas of Austin. We believe it takes a collective community commitment to reduce poverty and homelessness in Austin. Caritas of Austin defines a third party event as any fundraising activity by a non-affiliated group, where Caritas of Austin has limited fiduciary responsibilities and limited staff involvement in the production of the event.

These events may include two types:
Non-Affiliated: This type connects Caritas of Austin with an existing event, activity, or program, and a portion or all of the proceeds are donated to Caritas of Austin.
Special Interest: This is the organization of an independent event specifically designed to raise funds for Caritas of Austin, with all net proceeds benefitting Caritas of Austin.

By taking on a fundraising project the third party assumes all responsibility for creating and producing the event. These are guidelines for hosting a community fundraiser and an agreement form we ask the fundraiser to submit to Caritas of Austin so we can recognize your efforts and offer our support.

By choosing Caritas of Austin as a beneficiary of your upcoming event you not only raise much needed funds four our work and mission, but you also help end poverty and homelessness as we know it in our community.

If you wish to host your own third party event, please read our guidelines and submit the agreement form to Kevin Shaw at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you for supporting Caritas of Austin!
