Awards ceremony-12Each year our organization selects one BIG Giver, who has given their time, talent, expertise, and funds to one of our partner organizations. A BIG Giver is an advocate for their chosen organization who has created a long-lasting and personal impact on the community. Terrell was chosen from a group of seven finalists in several rounds of voting. The other six finalists were Sibby Barrett of PAWS Shelter of Central Texas, Rosalie Boldin of Armstrong Community School, Carly Christopher of Creative Action, Janie Cook of My Healing Place, Edward Flores of Austin Dog Rescue, and Sharon Schindler of Service Dogs.

Boys & Girls Club of the Austin Area (BGCAA) nominated Terrell for his work on behalf of the 12,000 youth that BGCAA serves in the Greater Austin area. Over the past three years, Terrell has been dedicated to BGCAA’s mission volunteering over 300 hours to various projects in addition to guiding the organization’s ongoing capital campaign.

BGCAA’s mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Misti Potter, Executive Vice President of BGCAA described Terrell’s work for the organization, “He drives our board to move the needle on child poverty every day. He has an unwavering work ethic and personal moral compass, and is a true leader contributing his time, talent, and treasure not only to our organization, but many others in the community.”

“I Live Here, I Give Here works to inspire the people of Austin and their neighbors to make a difference in their community. Terrell Gates embodies that mission by inspiring everyone around him to get involved in improving the lives of our community’s most vulnerable kids. We are very excited to have the opportunity to honor him and his dedication to this important cause at this year’s BIG Give,” said Celeste Flores, Executive Director of I Live Here, I Give Here.
