Philanthropy is part of The Austin Focus operational strategy. We look for ways to engage with local nonprofits on a regular basis, knowing that not only is giving back the right thing to do, but that we become a stronger team through our giveback efforts as well.
Our most recent event saw us taking a stand for literacy. “Our team was very grateful to volunteer with BookSpring,” shared Kati, The Austin Focus’ Director of Operations. “This group builds early reading habits in children and helps families to encourage reading at home. We helped with duties such as inventory and labeling, and we also helped log the time, money, and people who used the foundation’s services at various sites. We can’t wait to volunteer again to help BookSpring in the future.”
When choosing a cause to support, there are a few guidelines we follow. One is that the group we
assist shares our values. BookSpring’s principles are almost identical to our own; they focus on excellence, integrity, innovation, diversity, community, collaboration, and education. When we realized how much we had in common with their team, and that we’d be making a difference in the lives of children, the decision to back them was easy.
Our success as a company comes with a responsibility to make our community stronger. To learn more about our commitment to philanthropy, follow The Austin Focus on Facebook.
