More: Brooks Gives Back raises funds through signature events on the Brooks campus, including the Dia De Los Muertos Gala, The Greenline Experience and the Chanclas y Cervezas Fiesta partner event. These and other financial contributions to Brooks Gives Back are used to support monetary awards to non-profits serving the Brooks area. Brooks Gives Back is governed by a Board of Directors that carefully reviews applications to select award recipients.
Three non-profit programs serving San Antonio’s South Side – Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio, Ride Connect, and the YMCA of Greater San Antonio – were each awarded $15,000 during Brooks Gives Back’s inaugural monetary disbursement, in September 2019.
Brooks Gives Back’s vision is for all who live, work, learn, play, and stay at Brooks to be vested in the ideals of the common good, generosity, and aspirational growth for the entire Brooks family.
