I Live Here I Give Here™ is on a mission to make Central Texas the most generous community in the nation. We believe that we can build a more united, more equitable, and more prosperous community for all when we give together.
I Live Here I Give Here helps you embrace generosity to make your mark, your way, on our community. 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, especially in a community where we value our culture of kindness!
