Five Ways To Give
In a few months, some will say, “it is the most wonderful time of the year! “
Twinkling city lights, tamales, and Texas holiday traditions create magical memories. This year, consider adding Texas Folklife to your holiday shopping list.
This year, give a gift that keeps giving with these five ways to support Texas Folklife or other non-profit organizations you care about this holiday season.
- Shop with AmazonSmile
If you already do your holiday shopping using Amazon, It is easy to generate donations for Texas’s folk and traditional arts while you shop using AmazonSmile! AmazonSmile is identical to the traditional Amazon website. The difference is that Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase on thousands of eligible holiday and everyday items only when you shop at smile.amazon.com.

- Check if your employer matches charitable contributions to double your donation
Many companies offer Charitable Giving Programs to match gifts made by employees to registered non-profits. Double your donation this holiday season by checking with your employer or reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if your company will match your end-of-year donation.
