    The Atheist Community of Austin is pleased to announce a new full-time staff member, Amy Price. She has accepted the job of Director of Development and Communications, a new position created in 2022 to support ACA through a period of unprecedented growth. Amy’s nonprofit experience spans twenty-five years and includes national recognition for her work. To date in her career, she has secured more than $150 million in nonprofit funding from philanthropic, corporate, and federal sources. She is a popular trainer at state and national conferences on the many facets of nonprofit revenue generation. We asked her to introduce herself to our members and friends, and here’s what she shared:

    “I could not be happier to have been hired by the Atheist Community of Austin. As an atheist, and a proud parent of atheists, I have a personal connection to the mission of ACA and am glad to be working with the board, volunteers, staff, members, and friends of the ACA to advance our mission. My experience with promoting nonprofit partnerships should be of particular use with ACA, as our work protecting personal freedoms lends itself to cooperative efforts with other entities who have a stake in maintaining and expanding the rights of individuals. As I am learning about the ACA’s rich and varied history, I am truly impressed with the quality and volume of volunteer engagement at every level—with talent from local, national, and international levels combining forces on programming. This is a resource that few nonprofits can boast, and it underscores the value members/friends of the ACA see for the work being done to reinforce the separation of religion and government. In the weeks and months to come, I hope to be communicating with many of you as I work to improve and create communication and engagement opportunities to strengthen the scope of ACA programming.

    On a personal note, I’m a native Texan who calls Austin home for many reasons—not the least of which is Barton Springs Pool, where I can be found swimming an hour every day, rain or shine. I'm an avid reader, a fan of live music, and prefer to be in a National Park when there's time off."

    We are pleased to announce that our board just approved our FY2020 990! We’ll be posting it to the website once the IRS accepts our filling.

    In an effort to adhere to best practices for nonprofits, we post all our tax returns on our website. Folks have been curious about why the last return posted is for 2019.

    Like many nonprofit organizations, the ACA operates on a fiscal year that is different from the calendar year. Our fiscal year is June 1 to May 31. This is the annual period ACA uses for accounting and financial purposes and for reporting to the IRS. Our annual 990 filing  is in concert with our fiscal year.

    To ensure our 990 filing is correct and meets all IRS requirements, we retained the services of Montemayor Britton Bender to manage and oversee the process of filing our tax return. We work hard to be totally transparent with our finances and seek to demonstrate our good stewardship of the funds donors like you entrust to us.

    If you ever have any questions, please feel free to reach out. We love hearing for you!

    Hi Folks! :) Here' a quick update on the Freethought Library building: We've made some improvements to the lighting and the back patio area with an eye towards restarting community events soon (safety precautions allowing).

    Also, the storage building in the back has had electricity, Internet, alarm, air conditioning, and insulation added so we can now use the shed to store items that require climate control. We have some plans for a grand re-opening in the near future so keep an eye out for announcements!
