ABOUT VALKYRIE GIVES
Valkyrie Gives is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) started by Valkyrie Racing. Valkyrie Gives was formed to aid women and children at risk - with a special focus of ending the injustices of child trafficking.
Valkyrie Gives provides our donors with the confidence that 100% of their gift is going directly to a proven project that will positively impact the lives of women and children at risk.
All administrative and other expenses associated with Valkyrie Gives are funded entirely by Valkyrie Racing.
Each partner project is personally vetted by meeting with them, investigating their operation, and reviewing their financial records. We hold ourselves personally accountable for every dollar we donate.
In addition to providing funds, we look for ways we can become active participants in the organizations we support.
Together, we are stronger and more powerful- we invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable.
HELPING WOMEN & CHILDREN
CHILD TRAFFICKING IS A TRAGEDY THAT NEEDS GREATER WORLDWIDE ATTENTION
Child trafficking is a global tragedy - an estimated 5.5 million children are recruited, transported, transferred, harbored, abused and exploited. Some are forced to work in brothels and strip clubs or for escort and massage services. Others may be forced to work in sweatshops, on construction sites or in houses as domestic servants; on the streets as child beggars, in wars as child soldiers, on farms, in traveling sales crews or in restaurants and hotels. Despite efforts to combat trafficking across the globe, this heinous crime continues to be wildly lucrative and is growing at an alarming rate.

OUR VOLUNTEER EFFORTS
As part of Valkyrie Gives vision to be modern day Valkyries, we volunteer to investigate child trafficking crimes, rescue victims of trafficking, and support the work of local agencies and law enforcement.
Through this involvement we gain first-hand experience, and are “the eyes and boots on the ground” for those who donate.
#RaceToRescue is at the heart of Valkyrie Racing’s Project 356 World Rally Tour. We are racing six races on seven continents with the goal of raising awareness and resources to fight child trafficking around the globe.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Renée Brinkerhoff, the founder of Valkyrie Racing and Valkyrie Gives, has a story to share of finding personal growth and purpose when pursuing a dream and confronting obstacles and fears to achieve that dream.
After experiencing success at the age of 57 in her debut race as a driver in La Carrera Panamericana, Renée realized that this accomplishment was a powerful platform to help others that were at risk and disadvantaged.
Valkyries are mythological female warriors with fierce, compassionate hearts who saved the wounded and dying on the field of battle, carried them to heaven, to heal and restore life.
