Bryan Gingg Legacy Fund
$25,000 Matching Gift for the Bryan Gingg Legacy Fund
San Luis Obispo County, CA – Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Luis Obispo County recently established the Bryan Gingg Legacy Fund, in honor of his 18 years of dedication to the agency and the children in their mentoring programs. When Bryan passed in January 2018, his wife Beverly was touched by the donations given to Big Brothers Big Sisters in Bryan’s honor. Collaborating with Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, the Bryan Gingg Legacy Fund was created in early 2020. In February, the Gingg family pledged to match every donation made to the Fund up to $25,000, turning each dollar donated into $2.00!
Bryan was a Big Brother to two boys, Jacob and Javier; member of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Board of Directors for 16 years; Program Committee Chair, and in 2014, received the ‘Big Brother of the Year’ award for the State of California. “Bryan was an integral member of the Big Brothers Big Sisters family. Being a Board member and a Big Brother gave him a unique perspective of our programs and we are honored that his family has entrusted us to be the stewards of their gift,” says Patty Carpenter of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
The Bryan Gingg Legacy Fund funds will be used to support our programs which build developmental assets in vulnerable children through role models and mentor friendships. Links for KSBY and Central Coast Journal stories.
