We want to show our community that we truly are for Austin in meaningful and helpful ways. One of the ways we can do this is through partnership with local non-profits. And because we know that community groups and families who serve together form deeper connections with each other, this adventure will be beneficial for everyone.
Below, you will see all the organizations with which we have laid the foundation for long-term partnerships. When you click on the logos, you'll find information about the mission of each organization, the ways your group/family can help, and any volunteer requirements you'll need to know before signing up.

Who can serve through Be For Austin?
You can serve with your community group, short-term group, your family, and/or as an individual. Use the legend on the website to help you see at a glance which opportunities might work best for the age ranges in your group/family.
With what kind of non-profits do we partner?
We partner with a variety of organizations because we know that our church is made up of people with many different types of passions. You’ll find opportunities to work with and help children, families, elderly, and even animals.
Do I need to tell Northpoint if we serve?
We are collecting data so we can gauge the effectiveness of Be For Austin.When you let us know how you are engaging with the community, you also have the opportunity to help make Be For Austineven better.
What should I wear?
We would love for you to wear your For Austinshirts, as they identify you as a group and invite people to ask questions about Northpoint.
How often should we serve as a community group?
We would love for each group to serve together at least once a quarter.
If my children serve with us, can they get community service hours?
In most cases, yes! You can take the form with you to have the non-profit administrator sign or a member of the Groups team can also sign for you.
What if we want to serve together with a non-profit that is not listed?
We’d love to hear about who you want to partner with so we might be able to make connections with them to see if it would also be a good church-wide fit for long-term partnership.
I have an idea for a new non-profit with whom we could partner. Who do I notify?
Please send your ideas and the organization's contact info to the Groups team.
