Host a Community Event

We believe in working together to end homelessness. Your event can make a difference.

We are always excited when someone comes to us with an event that they’re planning and says, “I want this to help someone.” From birthday parties to concert proceeds to “round-up” promotions, there are so many ways that you can make Austin a more vibrant place for all. Our continued partnership with the community shows us that Austinites are up for the challenge.

Community Events FAQs

We will leave the production and promotion of the event to you. However, we love sharing news about community events on our website and social media channels. Provide an image, flyer, and any relevant hashtags, and we will be happy to help get the word out!

There are many ways your event can benefit Caritas of Austin. A donation bucket or percent of your proceeds is one way, but we've also partnered with food drives and gift card drives that provide a direct and impactful benefit to the people we serve. Events that raise awareness are also a wonderful way to build community support around the issues we address.

Caritas of Austin will decline partnership for any event that is associated with an organization or activity incompatible with our mission, or which is in support of or opposition to any political candidate or political party.
