Austin Gives, Businesses Giving Back, a new program designed to recognize and encourage business philanthropy, was recently kicked-off during a press conference at City Hall by Mayor Lee Leffingwell and Bobby Jenkins, President of ABC Home and Commercial Services and 2011 chair of the Greater Austin Chamber.
The program invites all businesses who donate 1% or more of pre-tax earnings to philanthropy to sign a one-page, short and sweet pledge form, available on the website and below. There is no fee to join and it operates on the honor system so there will be no requests for financials nor detailed reports. The businesses will then be recognized throughout the year in traditional and social media, on the website and at an annual award celebration event.
