Launch Marketing Team Participates in Annual Day of Giving with Over $5,000 in Charitable Donations
AUSTIN, Texas, March 5, 2019– Launch Marketing, provider of turn-key marketing services for business-to-business companies, participated for the fourth straight year in Amplify Austin, an annual event of giving to local nonprofits.
This year, Launch participated in Amplify Austin by making a $5,000 matching donation to Breakthrough Central Texas, a nonprofit organization that enables students from low-income communities to be the first in their families to earn a college degree. Breakthrough tackled their $20,000 goal with a record-high donation amount of over $40,000! When asked about Launch’s involvement with Breakthrough, Chief Development Officer Grace Holland said, “Amplify Austin raises much needed funds to support Breakthrough’s mission of creating a path to and through college for children who happen to come from our Central Texas low-income communities. Since Launch Marketing began providing the matching gift to our Amplify campaign in 2015, we have seen incredible growth in the dollars raised and donors motivated to join our cause. All of this goes so far in helping our students achieve their dreams of a college degree.”
Amplify Austin unites the local community in support of nonprofits throughout the Central Texas area with an easy-to-use digital marketplace that connects the people of Austin to neighborhood charities they’re passionate about. In addition to a match with Breakthrough, Launch team members were given the opportunity to select a nonprofit that aligned with their passions and Launch donated $100 on behalf of each team member. This year, team members selected organizations including BIG Love Cancer Care, Texas 4000 for Cancer, Austin Pets Alive!, Central Texas Dachshund Rescue, SAFE Alliance and Make-a-Wish Central Texas.
Launch Marketing is committed to encouraging employees to contribute to causes personally meaningful to them while supporting the Austin community as a greater whole. Launch Marketing’s CEO, Christa Kleinhans Tuttle said, “Giving back is an integral part of making Austin a strong and united community. I’m thrilled we had the opportunity to once again participate in Amplify Austin through the sponsored employee contributions and the match program with Breakthrough Central Texas. I’m passionate about giving back to the community and Amplify Austin is the perfect outlet to connect the Launch team with the causes we are passionate about.”
