Every year following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is celebrated across the world, encouraging generosity and charitable giving that transforms our communities for the better. It is a day American Constructors looks forward to each year as part of our duty to make Central Texas the best it can be — because we don’t just build here. We live here. We give here.
This Giving Tuesday, we’re supporting 14 Central Texas organizations that are working to strengthen our community through education, support and access to healthier lifestyles.
Learn more about these organizations below, and then join us in lending our neighbors a helping hand by visiting Amplify Austin – an online resource that makes it easy to learn about and donate to hundreds of Central Texas nonprofits all year long.
Thank you for joining us in giving back!
