AIDS Walk Austin Sharing Agencies
Sharing agencies are local HIV and AIDS-related nonprofit organizations who have formed AIDS Walk teams to raise funds for their respective organizations. To have your donation go to one of the following organizations rather than to the general Walk fund, please direct your donation to that group's fundraising team. Donations to the AIDS Walk not made to a sharing agency team go to AIDS Services of Austin's services and prevention outreach.
We are proud that AIDS Walk Austin is an event for and by the community--all money donated stays in Austin to help address the local face of a global epidemic.
