Stream has philanthropy as one of its core values. Giving back to the community has always been an effort part and parcel of what it is involved with. Stream has its philanthropic arm called Stream Care Foundation which has been actively involved in the rebuilding of homes for victims of hurricanes in Dallas. Also, Stream Care Foundation has partnered up with a charity organization to help those affected by homelessness. Recently in an article published by Patch.com Stream Energy and its philanthropic arm Stream Care Foundation were in the forefront in providing aid for victims of Hurricane Harvey that affected most of the neighborhood in Houston. The company also assisted its customers who live in Houston. Stream Care Foundation set an example for other organizations in Dallas by providing leverage for charities and the efforts of philanthropy. Giving back to the community has become an essential aspect of the Stream Energy brand. Stream Energy is an organization that provides energy services and other connected living services. The venture into philanthropy is a unique step, and the organization is bound to gain more collectively as a brand. Giving back will help the company kill two birds with one stone in that it will improve the lives of people. The second advantage of this step is that the organization would earn great respect from the community at the same time attracting more potential customers. Another advantage of this philanthropy effort for corporations like Stream is that during the rocky paths of the market this strategy would act as a buffer for the organizations. Patch.com pointed out that as of the statistics of 2016 the total contributions made to charities from business around the world cumulatively reached an approximate value of $19 billion. Stream Energy has managed the philanthropic process through its strategy of using associates who in turn earn commissions through their sales and in the end individually contribute to the causes of their choice. Stream Energy brand is however focused on the issue of homelessness as it has been on the rise in Dallas. The organization has teamed up with Hope Supply Co. and RedCross to help the community on the issue.
