What We Need

How This Will Help

For this project, we would like to begin 2018 with a list of companies that offer employee giving programs, and make sure that we are included in these programs. This project will help us develop and contact that list to ensure that we begin 2018 with a strong network of community partners.

We currently have many donors in the DFW area and a list of volunteers that work within these companies. We have dedicated staff that will assist you with anything you may need in this.
