General Nonproft Grant
Application and deadline
Applications will be available on August 7, 2022, and the deadline for submission is September 28, 2022, at 5pm.
The Anna+Anton Olson Legacy Fund provides philanthropic grants to strengthen lives in the Georgetown, Hutto and Taylor communities through a life cycle of caring.
Nonprofits can apply for funding covering program support or general operating support, but not both.
- Nonprofit Program Support is funding for a specific program or project (new and/or existing) of a nonprofit. Funds can be used for any element of the program’s budget. Program support awards will be between $5,000 and $20,000.
- Nonprofit General Operating Support is unrestricted funding. Nonprofits may use the funds for administrative purposes, to meet monthly obligations, to support programming, pay salaries, or to meet other organizational needs. General operating support awards will be between $5,000 and $10,000.
Nonprofits that have been funded during the previous grant cycle must wait one year before they are eligible to apply again. For example, if Nonprofit ABC was funded in 2021, they are not eligible to apply again until 2023.

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.
