It all started at Slingshot

The Foundation is supported by Slingshot, LLC employees. Founded in Dallas in 1995, Slingshot is a full-service advertising and marketing agency with particular expertise developing integrated communications programs. The agency’s clients include the American Heart Association, Taco Bueno, and Texas Tourism. For each hour that a Slingshot employee bills to a client, a dollar is put into the fund.

Why do we give?

The answer is different for every person, but what it really comes down to is a deep connection to our roots. The best way for us to ensure Dallas’ and Austin’s continued growth is to nurture the children that will take ownership of the community when they grow up. If we instill in these children a love for education and creative problem solving while they’re young, they will not only be better off for it, so will we. At the end of a long hard day, it’s gratifying to know that no matter what we were working on, our hours benefit the kids. Essentially, a piece of everybody’s day is dedicated to giving something back.
