The BRIG Family Foundation (EU) was created to help our BRIG family and friends in Ukraine.
BRIG is the world-leading manufacturer of rigid inflatable boats, with headquarters in Kharkiv, Ukraine. BRIG distributors worldwide have come together to support our fellow Ukrainian friends in light of recent events.
The main objective of this fundraiser is to raise money for the foundation to help:
- Refugees from Ukraine that we know of via our contacts at BRIG HQ
This could be employees, families of employees, friends of employees, or any other displaced Ukrainian we may hear about.
- Provide housing and travel for any BRIG employee that has left or is planning to leave Ukraine
Right now, a number of BRIG employees have left Ukraine. With funding, we want to ensure that all employees have a place to stay as well as proper travel arrangements if they leave. Funds will also help future travel plans for when they can return home.
In these difficult times, we want BRIG employees to know that we stand behind them. Therefore, we are enlisting the help of the entire BRIG community. If you aren't in the position to make a donation at this time, we ask that you share this fundraiser with anyone you see fit.
BRIG USA has started this fundraiser in an effort to raise money for the BRIG Family Foundation (EU). All money raised via this fundraiser will be directly transferred to the BRIG Family Foundation (EU) which is administered by a group of individuals. Frank Hillen of BRIG France is the President of this foundation, while Dominic Stockmann of BRIG Germany and Paul McCarthy of BRIG England are the board members.
