Jim Brinkley GIVE Scholarship

Jim Brinkley is a civic and philanthropic leader and a true champion of community change and impact. Business Volunteers created the Jim Brinkley GIVE Scholarship Fund in recognition of his contributions and leadership in the creation of Business Volunteers in 2003, and to support the continued development of future community championsand changemakers.

The Jim Brinkley Scholarship Fund will ensure that talented young professionals who cannot afford the fees of the GIVE Program will be given an opportunity to participate in this program and fulfill their potential to become the next generation of civic community leaders. We believe it is this group of future leaders who are critical to our ability to address the opportunities and challenges facing our community.

GIVE is a 9-month civic leadership development program that provides participants with enhanced civic knowledge and awareness, increased leadership skills, new networks, and volunteer opportunities that transform each individual and prepare them to take on volunteer leadership positions that will help to improve the quality of life in our community.
