Be It! Foundation Gala 2022

About this event

Dear Community Partners,

The mental health of our community has been a focus in the news recently, with people suffering at all ages. The Be It! Foundation is a non-profit organization that aims to increase community wellbeing and decrease mental health stigma. We have four funding areas:

Scholarships to students who want to make a difference in their community,

Service-Learning Fellowships for training established providers to increase the quality of care,

Emergency funding for basic needs, and the

“You Matter” Mental Health stigma reduction campaign.

Our scholarships invest in a student until they reach their highest educational goal. This assures that we build a pipeline for career success and lowers the anxiety of a student who may not be able to come up with their tuition costs. Our first year, we had 8 Be It! Scholars. Marcella graduated with her bachelor’s in communications and is now working with our foundation. Ana Valeria graduated with her masters and is now working as a speech pathologist. This year, we are proud to announce 7 Be It! Scholars who are working to change the world and share their gifts with the community.

South Texas has not had access to high quality mental health services that are available in other parts of the country. Last year, 30 Be It! Fellows were trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing to be able to address distressing memories, beliefs, feelings, and behaviors that get in the way of one’s ability to live a fruitful life.

We are hosting our second Be It! Awards Gala, September 22, 2022 at Laredo College from 11:30-1:30. Please consider being a sponsor to our event or any form of sponsorship. Your donation will be leveraged to invest more in the community. We have attached a Gala Sponsorship Page for your consideration.
