Thank You To Our 2020 Sponsors


Brazos Valley Cares exists for the primary purpose of providing financial aid support to local veterans, their families, and local veteran service organizations. Operated solely by a volunteer Board of Directors, 100% of all money raised goes directly towards the mission. Our goal is to utilize our strong fundraising capabilities to best support and give back to the deserving men and women within our community.

We serve a unique population of veterans within the Brazos Valley from retirees to student veterans attending both Blinn College and Texas A&M University. Through our grant process and Emergency Reserve Fund, we seek to provide for a variety of needs, such as mental health, financial assistance, and emergency support.

It is due to the generosity of our community that we have been able to carry out our mission, but the needs are ever present. To help us continue to support our local veterans, we ask that you consider joining us in our cause as a way to show gratitude for their sacrifices.
