Dallas based energy company Stream Energy has always been a community centered, philanthropic business and that legacy is going to grow more. By established a philanthropic division of their company, called Stream Cares, the company can focus their energy and efforts when it comes to charitable causes. The foundation is intended to impact and improve the lives of individuals that live in the regions in which they serve, where the greatest need is and in ways that will cause and create community wide and generational improvements.
By connecting with the greater community Stream Energy knows that it can create a greater sense of community for its employees, customers, and business partners. The understanding that all areas of the community are connected is really what makes Stream Energy so powerful and successful and what the business is built on as a whole.
Stream Energy decided that the independent branch for charitable endeavors was necessary and warranted after its many years of work within the community, but notably following Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts. The company was already working with several other non-profits to find areas of the community where the need was greatest and where the biggest impact could be made, but it found that an organized effort through which it could reach out to the community as well as other sponsors would alleviate some of the concerns around philanthropic efforts. Taking this step towards establishing the foundation allows the company to better serve the areas where its employees and customers are located, as well as opens many more doors through which to reach out to the community with the aid it is able to provide.
Since establishing Stream Cares, the community has benefited immensely and many new relationships have been forged and fostered. The company and its employees can serve their community with pride and the knowledge that their work is needed and appreciated.
