Corporate Donations From BRCC Continue To Expand BRCC’s Reach
Staying true to its mission, Black Rifle Coffee Company continues to donate time, energy, and resources not only through the BRCC Fund but also through the corporate side of the company. BRCC has a reputation for its commitment to veterans, first responders, and active-duty military members. Since the company went public, that commitment hasn’t changed.
In the month of August alone, BRCC’s corporate donations totaled $180,000. For the fiscal year, more than $862,000 in cash donations were sent to a variety of charities and organizations.
Below are the recipients of these donations:
Special Operationss Warrior Foundation received $50,000 between June and August. This foundation ensures complete post-secondary educational support and additional educational opportunities, essentially “cradle to career,” for all eligible surviving children of fallen special operations forces members and children of all Medal of Honor recipients, as well as providing immediate financial assistance to severely wounded, ill, and injured special operations personnel.
The HunterSeven Foundation was a recipient for funds raised during the Terminal List coffee sales. A veteran-founded nonprofit, HunterSeven works in the medical-research and education fields and has quickly become the leader in identifying potential toxic exposures and subsequent illnesses in military veterans. The funds it has received will go toward supporting the affected military community and educating them and their health care providers on critical health information related to their exposures.
K9 Hurricane’s Heroes received $87,000 in August thanks in part to the Hurricane Roast sales. This volunteer-run nonprofit organization provides retired law-enforcement and military dogs with subsidized veterinary care so they can live long and healthy lives. Often with a retired working dog, the handler gets handed the medical bills and day-to-day care, which can be difficult to manage. To ensure these retired dogs have the best lives possible, Hurricane’s Heroes works to remove the financial burden from the handlers so that these former working dogs can enjoy their retirement as dogs.
The Wild Sheep Foundation received $25,000. The WSF is a conservation organization dedicated to restoring the dwindling wild-sheep populations in North America. With the mission of putting and keeping wild sheep on the mountains, the WSF uses funds raised to trap and transplant sheep populations. Since the 1970s, the sheep populations have increased from less than 25,000 to 85,000.
The Greater Dallas Veterans Foundation received $10,000. The BRCC corporate donation was part of a partnership with the BRCC Fund to help support veterans receiving help for traumatic brain injuries. This organization works within North Texas communities to create opportunities for meaningful engagement with veterans and to inspire the ideal of “service above self.”
