About the Brinker Family Fund:
- The Brinker Family Fund was established as a 501(c)(3) organization in 1997 to help Brinker employees and their families in times of need such as natural disasters, serious illness, death or injury. In times of catastrophic events, all Brinker team members (part-time, full-time, salaried) are eligible to receive assistance.
- The organization is funded primarily by Brinker team members who donate a percentage of their paychecks to assist team members nationwide during times of need. Currently more than 40 percent of the Brinker work force are participants or donors.
- Since the program’s inception, more than $15 million has been donated to aid Brinker team members and their families. Since 2007, the Fund has annually raised approximately $1 million supporting more than 400 BrinkerHeads when they needed it most.
