Corporate Social Responsibility
Ameri100 aims to create a more diverse tech marketplace by investing in the future of tech, young adults with a drive for knowledge. By putting our efforts into diversifying the number of qualified people in tech we are ensuring the longevity of our community’s workforce for generations to come. Not only will this allow us to succeed in helping those in the communities we serve, but it will also allow us to truly live the core values we have set in place for our company.
At Ameri100, we know that amazing things happen when companies make an active commitment to their communities. We seek to make a local impact with AmpowerDTX, Our in-house CSR initiative. This initiative aims to empower underserved populations of high school seniors in the Dallas area by providing them with essential technology to further their education goals.
AmpowerDTX Laptop Program
This initiative was made possible in part through a collaboration with the Texas A&M Chapter of the College Advising Corps (CAC). With the help of CAC’s programming, Ameri100 was able to reach a pool of talented students who demonstrated a true need for assistance in obtaining technology to be successful in their studies. The students were kept anonymous to ensure that the focus was on their specific situation and need.
The students benefiting from the company’s efforts are high school seniors local to DFW who are pursuing a higher education. In providing the resources needed for university students to succeed, Ameri100 believes that it is truly investing in the future of our community and its workforce.
Ameri100 hopes that this program continues to ensure the success of the future of our community and its workforce. By looking for change makers in the student population, and the companies we are choosing to partner with, we are changing the landscape of equity in tech and higher education.
The winning students come from West Mesquite, Poteet, and John Horn High Schools in Mesquite ISD and from Grand Prairie High School in Grand Prairie ISD. All five students plan on attending four-year universities in the Fall. The Universities chosen are as follows:
- The University of North Texas
- The University of Texas at Austin
- Texas Women’s University

Kids’ Meals Inc.
Kids’ Meals Inc provides meals to children under 6 years old in the Houston area who struggle with food insecurity. The warehouse they use to hold these perishable items lost power during the unprecedented snowstorm throughout the state of Texas and resulted in a total loss of inventory. As an organization that provides approximately six thousand meals to Houston children a day, this loss was incredibly devastating.
Through the support of our LinkedIn followers, we were able to fundraise enough money to support meals for 500 Houston children. Moved by the generosity of our following, Ameri100 CEO, Brent Kelton, matched that donation to provide a total of 1000 meals to Houston children struggling with food insecurity.
