TI is committed to building stronger communities where we live and work around the world.
Through our corporate and TI Foundation giving, we invest in programs targeted at priority issues within our major site communities. Through this, we aim to improve the quality of life, primarily in Dallas -- TI’s headquarters city -- through well-considered and well-measured investments in education, human services, racial equity and arts. All of these are critical to a thriving and fair community where people of all colors and cultures want to live and work. The TI Foundation also supports the voice and community mindedness of our employees and retirees by matching their monetary contributions up to $30,000 and the value of their volunteer hours up to $1,000 per year.
