Texas Instruments To Sponsor United Way Of Metropolitan Dallas "Nine For 90" Community Service Projects

















DALLAS, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) announced TI will be the presenting sponsor of "Nine for 90," a series of volunteer-driven community service projects and events celebrating the 90-years of service United Way has provided to the communities of North Texas. 

"For many years we've partnered with United Way to solve critical problems facing our communities.  That's why today each of us continues our investment and involvement as donors and volunteers – to make an impact," said Richard Templeton, TI chairman, president and CEO. "We cannot think of a better way to celebrate our long partnership with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and our commitment to this community than by encouraging our employees and others to give their time through these special service projects." 

TI has been a strong partner for more than 50 of United Way's 90 years. Last year, TI's North Texas campaign raised more than $2.6 million in employee contributions, along with retiree donations, TI corporate funds and a TI Foundation grant, adding up to a total of $5.3 million for United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.  TI has been the largest aggregate donor to the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas since one of the company's founders helped start the local organization in 1961.

Overall in 2013, TI raised a total of $6.6 million for United Way campaigns across the country to help address critical issues involving education, income and health in communities where the company operates.  United Way's highest volunteerism award, the J Erik Jonsson award, is named after TI founder and former Dallas mayor, J Erik Jonsson. Last year alone, TI employee and retiree volunteers participated in more than 82 "Day of Impact" service projects for United Way partners, and served on various United Way committees, boards, grant panels and councils. 

"TI's history of volunteerism and leadership in this community is unparalleled," said Jennifer Sampson, President and CEO of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.  "Coupled with the partnership and support of the Dallas Cowboys and the NFL, we will mobilize thousands of volunteers this year impacting lives across our four-county service area of Dallas, Collin, Rockwall, and southern Denton." 

"Nine for 90," a series of nine community service projects, will each be championed by one of the nine Dallas Cowboys legends who have participated in the United Way-NFL partnership over the years. "Nine for 90" service projects focus on United Way's  impact areas of education, income and health – the building blocks for strong families and thriving communities.
