Jim Brinkley is a civic and philanthropic leader and 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 15 years ago.
The Fund supports talented young professionals with an opportunity to participate in the program and fulfill their potential to become the next generation of 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.
