Bettering the Community: Zilker Media’s 2023 Community Impact Highlights

At Zilker Media, community isn’t just a checkbox on our to-do list—it’s at the heart of who we are. We firmly believe that investing in our community is essential to nurturing positive change within the communities we serve. By prioritizing the betterment of those around us, we can create a ripple effect of positive impact that extends far beyond ourselves, enriching the lives of individuals, families, and organizations within our community. That’s why bettering our community is more than just a value here—it’s a guiding principle that runs through every aspect of our brand. In 2023 alone, we proudly donated $79,000 through a combination of in-kind, pro bono, and monetary contributions, making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and communities. 


We dedicated over 130 hours to in-kind contributions throughout the year, channeling our energy and expertise into various local community projects and nonprofit initiatives. One notable highlight was our volunteering day at the Central Texas Food Bank, where the Zilker team came in full force! From sorting food to packing essentials, each team member played a vital role in making a tangible difference in the lives of those in need. Thank you to the Central Texas Food Bank for welcoming us into their facility and allowing us to contribute to such a meaningful cause. It was a privilege to collaborate with them in creating positive change.


We also had the chance to leverage our expertise for the greater good, exemplified through our complimentary campaign services to nonprofits and charitable organizations. Through these pro-bono efforts, we aimed to empower organizations to amplify their missions and extend their impact within the community. One standout initiative in this regard is our annual Zilker Media Nonprofit Marketing Summit, where we gather nonprofit organizations to share industry insights and practical marketing tools. During last year’s summit, we delivered informative sessions on email marketing, PR for nonprofits, and design for non-designers. We hope that through our collaborative efforts, these organizations will enhance their reach and presence, ultimately significantly impacting the communities they serve.


Zilker Media’s commitment to community impact extends beyond our time and expertise, including direct financial contributions to various organizations and causes. For example, we’ve supported CASA of Travis County, an organization dedicated to advocating for abused and neglected children in the foster care system, and Coats for Kids, an initiative providing warmth to children in need during colder months. We recognize that the impact of our donations goes beyond the immediate recipients, contributing to a culture of care and support within the broader community. Our goal is to contribute to the creation of a more inclusive and equitable society where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.


In reflecting on Zilker Media’s community impact in 2023, we’re grateful for our opportunities to give back. Bettering the community isn’t just a value—it’s a cornerstone of our identity. These experiences have enriched the lives of those directly impacted and strengthened our bonds with community partners, and inspired us to do even more in 2024. We remain committed to seeking new opportunities to make a meaningful difference, whether through volunteering, pro-bono services, or financial contributions. If you have a cause that holds special meaning, share it with us below so we can explore ways to support it together. Your input and involvement are invaluable as we strive to foster a more compassionate, inclusive, and vibrant community—spreading good vibes to all!
