At SAGE, we feel incredibly fortunate to have been supported by both the DFW community and the surrounding areas, as well as the promotional products industry. Because of this support, we have been able to grow into the company that we are today. That’s why we believe that giving back to the community and industry that has supported us since 1992 is so important! Whether it’s donating nonperishables and needed items, volunteering our time, providing financial support to the next generation in the promotional products industry, and donating to organizations that are near and dear to our team member’s hearts. You can learn about all the ways we give back to our community below.

Metrocrest Services is a nonprofit organization that serves Dallas, Addison, Carrollton, Coppell, and Farmers Branch. They provide programs for families, seniors, and individuals in crises or who need help getting back on their feet and stable. Their programs include rent and utility bill aide, financial and budgeting assistance, food assistance, including sack lunches for kids in the summer, home repairs for seniors, and home-delivered meals for seniors. They also have holiday programs in both November and December.
Metrocrest is our favorite organization to pair with! We believe that they go above and beyond for our community and work hard to make sure everyone in need is cared for. We are also honored that they chose to honor us at their 2018 Seasons of Service event.
PPEF or the Promotional Products Education Foundation is a foundation that provides college scholarships to promotional products industry employees and their children to support their general studies as well as industry-related educational goals.
We believe that education for future generations of the promotional products industry is vital for the industry to keep thriving! Therefore, each year, we partner with PPEF to provide a scholarship to a student in the industry or the child of a parent in the industry attending school at North Texas University in Denton, Texas.
Our team members are like our family, so we have a fund to donate to organizations close to their hearts and offer support to employees who are maybe going through a difficult time.
Throughout the year, the SAGE Community Service Committee hosts initiatives for employees to give back to the community through donations, volunteer work, or financial contributions. Listed below are some of those initiatives:
