The goal of this grant is to give the selected nonprofit the dedicated financial and management resources needed to build up its organizational capabilities.



This new grant is a collaborative effort by The Anna+Anton Olson Legacy Fund and The Williamson County Institute for Excellence in Nonprofits, Inc.   TAAOLF will fund the multiyear grant and The Institute will provide (pro bono) management advice, support, guidance and organizational tools and templates.  Nonprofits that have been operational for at least 3 years but not more than 5 years are eligible to apply, and only 1 nonprofit will be selected for this multiyear grant.


Funding and process

TAAOLF will provide a grant award for a maximum of $50,000 funded in 3 Stages reflecting the growth and achievements of the selected nonprofit.

The process will be based on achieving documented goals during three stages  – the first stage is focused on planning and will identify the goals to be achieved during the two subsequent stages of implementation.  The nonprofit, in coordination with The Institute, will have the flexibility to determine the Stage length and funding based on the work needed to achieve the goals for each Stage.

Honoring the lives of Anna and Anton Olson

Anna and Anton Olson were pioneers who independently emigrated from Sweden as teenagers in 1902 (Anton from Skåne) and 1907 (Anna from Vårmland).  They met in Chicago and married in 1909.

Anna and Anton moved to Texas in 1911, first to Crystal City and later to the Taylor area near Austin.

In 1935, Anna and Anton bought their own farm closer to Hutto, Texas where they successfully farmed until their passing.  They had hoped someday to travel back to Sweden to visit family, but never realized that dream.
