Brinker International’s goal is to Make People Feel Special, and one of the ways we strive to accomplish that is through
giving back. We are a global business, but our heart is rooted in the communities we serve. Giving back to those communities is one of Brinker’s core values. Besides the monetary contributions we make to 501c(3) organizations, our Team Members contribute thousands of hours of volunteer time. Our main areas of giving are health, social services, arts and education, and diversity.
If you would like to make a monetary or in-kind (dining certificates) request, please do so through this on-line application. We are no longer taking requests by mail, email, or fax.
