Traci Austin

Grants Manager

I bring a decade of nonprofit and philanthropy expertise to the Internet Society Foundation, driven by a dedication to social justice and advocacy.

Transitioning from the for-profit sector, my roles as a Case Worker and Resettlement Coordinator at the International Rescue Committee, and as a Development Officer at the ACLU of Georgia, underscore my commitment to serving marginalized communities. Most recently I was a Grants Management Associate at Borealis Philanthropy, working with multiple funds to build equitable and efficient grants management systems, streamline processes, and ensure due diligence while utilizing grantmaking best practices.

A graduate of Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, I hold a degree in public policy with a nonprofit management certification. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, I find balance through scuba diving, yoga, and reading, alongside my spouse and two beloved dogs.
