The Sundt Foundation, the charitable branch of Sundt Construction Inc., is giving seven local nonprofit organizations grants totaling $15,200 this quarter, according to a release.
The San Diego-area organizations that recently received funding include San Diego Family Care, Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, Casa de Amparo, San Diego Rescue Mission, Voices for Children, Burn Institute, and Special Olympics Southern California.
Sundt established the foundation in 1999 to give its employee-owners a way to give back to their communities. It provides support to organizations dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged children and adults, and most grants are made to organizations in the communities where Sundt has offices and construction projects. The foundation is funded primarily by contributions from Sundt employees and company matching.
