Austin Marathon Gives presented by Moody Foundation

The Austin Marathon Gives charity program connects non-profit organizations to passionate race participants willing to fundraise and raise awareness for causes that give back to our local community. Individuals can select one of our official charities to run with and add even more meaning to your training and race day miles by supporting a worthy cause.

Since its inception 7 years ago, the programs charitable donations total of $3,893,298. For the past four years, we’ve been the proud recipient of a grant from the Moody Foundation to match funds raised by individual runners to their favorite Official Charity.

We are so excited to welcome Moody Foundation back as our presenting sponsor in 2021! Through this partnership each dollar that you donate will be matched, up to $10,000 per charity!

The Moody Foundation

The Moody Foundation has given nearly $1 million through our charity programs since 2016. More than 25% of that total was given to 36 Central Texas nonprofits during the 2019 Austin Marathon. The 2021 Austin Marathon Gives presented by The Moody Foundation is already working to increase those numbers and further the positive impact on the Central Texas community.

The Moody Foundation logo.“The Moody Foundation is proud to match funds raised for these Central Texas causes,” said Ross Moody, trustee of the Moody Foundation and chairman and CEO of National Western Life Group. “This initiative is near and dear to our hearts and has been for many years. We’re so excited to support a program that gives runners the opportunity to make their miles meaningful and encourages donors to give back to the Central Texas community.”
