Your business gives back to our community in many different ways, and we're proud of the philanthropic spirit our collective business community is known for in the Austin area. Help us tell this story of philanthropy by participating in the 2021 Central Texas Corporate Giving Survey below. 
 
Through direct feedback from local businesses, we are able to identify trends and create benchmarks by which business leaders can measure their own corporate philanthropy, and be inspired to engage their employees through different methods of giving. We invite participants across companies and industries of all sizes. By participating in the survey, you have the opportunity to show clients and customers that they give back, while also taking an active part in the growth of their community. Every survey result, regardless of organizations or involvement in the past year, is crucial to the results. 
 
This survey was launched in Austin by philanthropic advisor Lisa Rodman in 2014 and is continued today by philanthropic leaders at Growing Good. If you are experiencing difficulties with the survey, please contact info@growing-good.org.
 
Survey note: these questions pertain to 2021 philanthropy. Participants may need to estimate planned giving efforts through the end of the year.
