Culture of Giving

Austin enjoys a vibrant and selfless non-profit community. These organizations are the thread that makes Austin one of the most caring cities in the world. Throughout the month of December CultureMap will feature the efforts of our favorite area non-profits in our Culture of Giving series. We want to help raise awareness of these great organizations and help them raise money. And what better time to help than now during the holidays? You can help too. CultureMap is partnering with I Live Here, I Give Here in order to make it easy for you to be a part of this community effort. Just look for the I Live Here I Give Here link at the end of each story to learn how you can immediately give back to these organizations that give so much to Austin.
