The December 5th Fund

2018 Brinkmann BECAUSE Recipient

The December 5th Fund is honored to be chosen as the 2018 charity of choice for Brinkmann Constructors.

The potential charities were narrowed down to four worthy St. Louis non-profit organizations; each one then gave a 15-minute presentation sharing their mission and vision to all of the employees. Afterwards, they voted on their favorite and we were notified that D5F was selected as their 2018 charity of choice. Brinkmann has set a fundraising goal of $25K to be donated to The December 5th Fund, which they’ll raise through various events throughout the year

We’re extremely grateful for everyone who connected with and believed in our mission. As I said while speaking to each one of them, “This is an experience that will not only change the life of a family, but your life as well.” We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces when we help our next family affected by cancer.


Brinkmann BECAUSE: “Brinkmann BECAUSE was founded in 2014 by Brinkmann employees; the BECAUSE initiative is a way to give back to the community where they live, work and play. Each year, Brinkmann employees nominate and vote on a charity. The BECAUSE volunteer committee then organizes special events and recruits coworkers, clients, friends and family to volunteer time, talents and money to benefit the charity selected for that year.

Brinkmann Constructors is a national general contractor that has completed $4 billion in construction since 1984. The company is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, and has offices in Denver, Colorado and Kansas City, Kansas.”
