St. David’s Episcopal Church has a long history of helping people in need in the Austin community. The GCCO administers the church grant proposal process and makes funding recommendations to the church Vestry. The Vestry determines how many grants will be awarded each year. In addition to awarding grants, the church provides direct service volunteers to area non-profit organizations and charities.The funds for St. David’s grants comes from revenue generated by Next-to-New, the St. David’s Consignment Resale shop on Burnet Road.
Since 1959, The Next-To-New Shop has been a part of the Austin landscape as the only not-for-profit consignment/resale shop giving back to the community more than three million dollars in grants to local charities. An equal portion is given for the restoration and upkeep of the Historic Church. The Shop is operated by a small staff with a large number of volunteers. The Shop consigns and sells household items, women’s clothing, accessories, china, crystal, dishes and more. The Next-To-New Shop is located at 5435 Burnet Rd. and gladly accepts donations.
