Diligent believes it has a powerful role to play in strengthening the communities where we live and where we work. Our strong culture of service and desire to make a meaningful social and business impact, along with our status as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned business, are at the heart of our community involvement initiatives. Our deep commitment to the military, the community and professional associations that best service IT and business interests are central to our community relations program. Diligent employees give their time, talent and finances to strengthen the organizations in which we are involved.

VALERO TEXAS OPEN (VTO)
Diligent supports the VTO – San Antonio’s premier PGA tournament held each spring – by sponsoring the Purple Heart Villa, the Night to Honor our Heroes event and by working as volunteers to support both the VTO itself and its charitable mission. Diligent’s sponsorship of the Purple Heart Villa allows wounded veterans and their families to watch the golf tournament in a private villa with food and drinks provided. The Valero Texas Open, along with the Valero Benefit for Children, raises $10 to $15 million every year that is distributed to hundreds of worthy charity organizations; positively impacting communities near and far. These incredible efforts have brought the Texas Open’s total charitable contribution to over $150 million.
