For over 25 years, Foundation Communities has helped empower low-income families in greater Austin to build a better financial future. You can join our mission by volunteering with the Community Tax Centers.

Each year, our volunteers put about $35 million in tax refunds back into the pockets of low-income families in our community - refunds they use to buy food, pay outstanding bills, and save for their children's future. In 2019, the tax centers expect to see more than 20,000 families. That’s a lot of people! To make this happen, we need 600 active volunteers.

No experience is necessary - we'll train you! Don't want to prepare taxes? We have options for you, too!

Whether you’re looking to build your skills and experience, make new friends, build your professional network, or to simply contribute your time to the community, this opportunity provides a substantial and meaningful way to volunteer. And if you’re a CPA or Enrolled Agent, you may be eligible for free continuing education credits with no pre-requisite requirements.

Training opportunities start in December. Sign up now to get details as they become available!
Volunteer Tax Preparers must attend classroom training either in December or January. Online training is available for volunteer Client Liaisons (client intake) and Spanish/English Translators. All volunteers must pass an un-timed, open-book certification test from the IRS (don't worry - we support you through each step!)
