Our Vision

To cultivate the power of giving back.

I Live Here I Give Here™ is on a mission to make Austin the most generous community in the nation. We believe that we can build a more united, more prosperous Austin for all when we give together as a community.

I Live Here I Give Here is a bridge to impact, helping you make your mark, your way on our city. Austin has been named one of the most economically segregated cities in the country while also being named one of America’s strongest economies. Austin is currently ranked the 33rd most generous city in the US, compared to our neighbors Dallas at number 4, Houston at number 5, and San Antonio at number 25. We know we can do better!

Programs like Amplify Austin Day, See Jane Give™, Give Back Jack™, Giving Tuesday, and the Board Internship Program are designed to help locals find the issues they care about and take action to be part of the solution. By inspiring new and young, givers, volunteers, and activists to make an impact on the community where they live, I Live Here I Give Here™ is ensuring that Austin thrives for decades to come.  I Live Here I Give Here was established in 2007.
