Annual Luncheon (November 1, 2017)
Our biggest fundraising event of the year. Each fall, we honor an individual, community and/or corporate partner who has made a significant contribution to dual generational and early childhood education in the Austin area. In 2016, we raised over $127,000.
Holiday Party (December)
300 of our children and families celebrate the holidays with volunteers serving a warm lunch, and enjoying fun festivities. Blue Santa donates gifts to all of our families in need.
Amplify Austin (March)
During this 24-hour community-wide event of online giving, AVANCE-Austin is participating among hundreds of non-profits in the Austin community to raise millions of dollars together while promoting dual-generation education.
Día de los niños/Day of the Child (April)
Held on a Saturday in April during the International Day of the Child, AVANCE families and children gather for a picnic, entertainment, games, educational activities while volunteers read and pass out books.
Graduation (Late May)
The culmination of AVANCE’s signature Parent-Child Education Program. 300 families and children every year walk the stage in their cap and gown to receive their diploma. Volunteers are always needed to sign in special guests and families.
