We are a proud member of the Houston and Austin communities and we value giving back to the areas we serve.

We believe in strengthening our communities and the environment not only with the spaces we design, but by giving back in as many ways as possible. Our history of community service dates back to the early ’80s, when John Kirksey began working with area nonprofits, charities, and other professional organizations. As our communities continue to grow and are met with different challenges, we focus our philanthropic efforts on areas we're not only passionate about, but ones where we have the greatest impact.

Kirksey in the Community

Recognizing the importance of giving back, our participation in the community adds spirit and purpose to our architectural projects. For 30 years, our annual holiday tree planting tradition has allowed us to plant almost 10,000 trees in our area, improving communities by offsetting carbon emissions and beautifying neighborhoods.

As a Houston and Austin-based company, we also feel it's important to give back and stay intimately involved in key professional and nonprofit organizations. In fact, we encourage our employees to be involved with a minimum of one professional association and one community association. We routinely work with the following organizations to further their causes and initiatives:

  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston, Inc.
  • Houston Parks Board
  • Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center
  • US Green Building Council
  • Trees for Houston
  • Houston Food Bank
  • East Fort Bend County Human Needs
  • Neighborhood Centers, Inc.
