DALLASITES101 SOCIAL IMPACT
presented by the Communities Foundation of Texas
Dallasites101 is committed to using its influence for a social impact initiative to amplify missions for good in Dallas. Each quarter, the company will promote a cause that it is passionate about and make a donation to support their great impact!
WE CREATED OUR SOCIAL IMPACT PROGRAM TO:
(1) Go beyond the ‘gram to enhance Dallas living and community for all.
(2) Highlight the world changers living in our local community.
(3) Share volunteer opportunities so you can help give back to Dallas too!
HERE ARE THE DETAILS:
Dallasites101 will announce its seasonal social impact partner every three months (aka each quarter). The cause will hold a mission that encompasses specific values Dallasites101 cares about in Dallas: safety, liveability, economic development and success, growth, education, inclusivity and cultural awareness, all of which will help make Dallas an even better place to live.
