Community Service Awards for Individuals

March 7-15, 2025 in Austin, TX

Community Service Awards for Individuals

Six individuals will receive a grant to an eligible 501(c)(3) or eligible charity of their choice, as well as a complimentary registration to SXSW 2020.

The Community Service Award is intended to honor the breadth of community service work of six individuals rather than organizations or groups. We are looking for individuals whose creative community service work bridges the digital divide, impacts the community positively and includes some degree of grassroots or hands-on organizing.

This community service award celebrates the life and work of SXSW Interactive co-founder, Dewey Winburne. Learn more about Dewey's life here. (For grants for nonprofit charitable organizations, please see Community Service Awards for Organizations )
