Donor Spotlight: Brinkmann Constructors
Brinkmann Constructors is a general contractor company in Denver, Colorado. In 2014, Brinkmann employees formed an annual charity initiative called BECAUSE (Brinkmann Employees Care About United Service Efforts), as a way of being more engaged and involved in the local community. Since its inception, their efforts across all of their office locations have raised more than $500,000 (the Denver office accounting for approximately $230,000). According to Brinkmann, the Denver office strives to identify local groups and/or ones with personal ties that they feel they can have an impact on, as well as do their part in providing that group with some additional visibility/recognition in the community.
TJS’ Joshua Early Childhood Center (JECC) has been a recipient of Brinkmann’s generosity for 2 consecutive years. When asked how Brinkmann heard of TJS, they informed us that one of the JECC staff members has a spouse who works for Brinkmann and nominated JECC as a recipient. This year, their primary fundraising events included the following and were primarily attended by local contractors, material suppliers, architects, engineers, and developers:
· Clay Shot at Colorado Clays
· Golf event at the Colorado Golf Club
· Poker event hosted by Mike Ward Maserati
TJS cannot thank Brinkmann enough for their donation and for helping spread our mission to the Denver community.
