Philanthropy

Giving back to the community has been a part of BuildASign’s DNA since our inception. We believe deeply in taking care of our customers, our teams, and those within our community.

Since 2008, we’ve given over $1M of in-kind donations to more than 1,700 unique non-profits through discounted signage and products. We also created a Troops program that has donated more than 345,000 banners and signs to the friends and families of military service members returning home from a deployment.

We empower BuildASigners to flex their philanthropic muscles through a series of community-based perks and opportunities:

  • Volunteer Time Off (VTO): A time-off program in which BuildASigners get paid to volunteer up to 24 hours a year!
  • Employee donations matching to the non-profit of their choosing.
  • A dedicated Community Advocate to help individuals and teams find the perfect volunteer opportunity, and organize BuildASign-wide giving blitzes and community events.
  • Taking part in programs like The Startup Games, Amplify Austin, and CreatAthon. Each of these programs are not only great team builders, but they benefit local and national non-profits.

To learn more about any of these programs email giving@buildasign.com.
