This is an annual celebration of businesses who have pledged 1% of pre-tax earnings such as volunteer time, products, services and financial support toward their community impact efforts.

It's an inspiring event, and the room is always filled with the buzz of a big celebration! Videos tell the stories of our finalists in each category, and story cards at each place setting summarize how our nominees make our community a better place.

We look forward to seeing you at the Austin Gives Generous Business Awards, where we will present the Bobby Jenkins Philanthropic Leadership Award and recognize the generous businesses that make our community great.
