The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas touches the lives of one in five North Texans, and our company was recently recognized for playing a key role for ongoing support of the important work accomplished by the organization. The 2018-19 United Way campaign - which was led by our company’s chairman, president and CEO, Rich Templeton, and his wife, Mary - raised more than $61.5 million.

“Philanthropy is alive and well in North Texas,” said Jennifer Sampson, McDermott-Templeton president and CEO of the organization. “Together, we have put opportunity in the hands of over 1 million North Texans. TI has been a pivotal and monumental supporter of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas since its inception almost 100 years ago. … TI’s annual contributions to United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and to our impact work are unparalleled.”

The United Way’s annual campaign raises money to fund programs in education, income and health. Nearly 3,000 employees volunteered for more than 75 United Way projects. Our company’s employee engagement manager, Terri Grosh, received the individual volunteer award for inspiring thousands of TI employees to give their time and skills in our communities.
