Dress for Success Austin: Amplify Austin Nonprofit Spotlight

RecognizeGood’s mission is to illuminate good in the greater Austin community, and through our partnership with I Live Here I Give Here and the community-wide day of giving known as Amplify Austin Day, we’re proud to showcase one way we’re doing that.

Since its launch in 2007, I Live Here I Give Here has helped raise over $100MM for Central Texas nonprofit organizations by helping promote over 700 nonprofit members and help tell their stories. Storytelling is something that many nonprofits struggle with, but thanks to the RecognizeGood partnership the I Live Here I Give Here staff was able to thoughtfully invite a group of nonprofits to tell their story through RecognizeGood. The videos in this series will be shown during Amplify Live, a 24-hour livestream that provides engaging content to attract donors to interact with the Amplify Austin site.

Thanks to our venue host for this series, Monks Jazz Club in east Austin!
