It's time to brag about the amazing time, talent, and treasure your company contributes to our community each year. You are highly encouraged to self-nominate for a coveted Austin Gives Award! Nominations are open now through June 2 for the categories of Generous Business, Employee Engagement, and Individual Volunteer of the Year. The submissions will be judged by a group of community leaders and finalists will be recognized at the 2023 Austin Gives Awards in late August.
The annual Austin Gives Awards luncheon exists to recognize generous companies for going above and beyond in their efforts to give back to our community through charitable causes. We know this blossoms in small, medium and large companies in different ways. Being nominated for an Austin Gives Awards is a great way to increase your business's visibility and highlight how you support our community. These awards celebrate your employees, partners, and your commitment to making a difference.
The Austin Chamber encourages business philanthropy because the business community can be a force for good in Austin. Giving back is not just good for the community; it is also good for businesses. Purpose-driven companies enjoy increased customer loyalty, attract top-tier employees, and foster a positive work environment. If your company makes generosity a part of your business model, we believe you deserve to be recognized and celebrated for your efforts.
Nominations take about 30 minutes to complete. It is very helpful to include photos, as well. We're eager to hear your story and recognize your company as well as the leaders in your company that are making this possible.
Submit your nomination by June 2 to be eligible for a 2023 Austin Gives Award.
