We Believe In Giving Back

Boot'n Shoot'n Logo

More than a one-day event, Boot’N & Shoot’N aims to make a lasting impact on the veteran community. Each year features a memorial tribute to fallen service members, with past honorees including Chris Kyle, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. In addition to funds raised for charity partners, two mortgage-free home grants have been given to deserving military families and hundreds of veterans have attended the event free of charge thanks to sponsor gifts.

Brain Treatment Foundation logo

Benchmark is proud to partner with The Brain Treatment Foundation. The Brain Treatment Foundation is the primary beneficiary for our annual Boot’n & Shoot’n event. The money we raise for the center goes towards scholarships to give a veteran two weeks of intensive treatment, care, and rehabilitation.

Brain Treatment Foundation is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support for brain health initiatives relating to treatment, rehabilitation, research and public education.

Brain Treatment Foundation is proud to support both past and present members of America’s Armed Forces.  There is a significant need for safe and effective treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury and Post-Traumatic Stress where poly-pharmacy and neglect have no place.

The goal of Brain Treatment Foundation is to partner with treatment providers and other organizations to restore hope and provide support for service members suffering from combat incurred Traumatic Brain Injury and/or Post-Traumatic Stress and their families. The founders firmly believe in collaboration, sharing data and uniting for a purpose larger than those served by each individual organization.  Through treatment, rehabilitation, research and public education, Brain Treatment Foundation seeks to become an active agent of change in the world of brain health. 

We are honored to work with the military members of this nation and will constantly strive to maintain that privilege through ethical and honest practices, while keeping the best interest of those we serve as our compass.

Benchmark Cares logo

At Benchmark, we are driven by a set of core values that guide our everyday actions. These core values have paved the way for a new initiative called Benchmark Cares. The goal of Benchmark Cares is to create an avenue for our Loan Officers and Branches to contribute, on a per transaction basis, to a Philanthropic Arm of Benchmark.  The funds raised through Benchmark Cares will go to the immediate and/or continuing needs of the Benchmark communities.
