Do Right, Love Texas. That's the Chisos motto, or mission statement, or whatever you want to call it. It's a phrase that sums up how we aim to run our business: doing the right thing and being good stewards of Texas.
We support those who also endeavor to do right by our great state. To that end, we donate funds as well as cowboy boots to charity auctions for organizations that we think are working hard to make a difference.
Here are a few of the folks we've donated to since our launch in November of 2019:
Big Bend Conservancy
BBC is a land conservancy helping to promote, to protect and to raise funds for Big Bend National Park and the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River in partnership with the National Park Service. Chisos is named after the Chisos mountain range in Big Bend and we are proud to call ourselves a Mountain Lion tier member.
Hill Country Conservancy
HCC is a nonprofit organization that preserves natural resources through conservation, community collaboration and engagement to sustain the Texas Hill Country. Chisos partnered with the HCC for our November launch party, giving 10% of all sales during the party to HCC and 100% of raffle ticket revenues.
West Texas Rehab Center
WTRC is a non-profit organization helping to improve the quality of life of those in need regardless of financial circumstance. Chisos donated a pair of damn comfortable cowboy boots to their telethon in January 2020.
