Sundt Construction announced Wednesday its San Diego employees selected five local nonprofit organizations to receive Sundt Foundation grants totaling $13,300 this quarter.
The Sundt Foundation was established by Sundt in 1999 to give its employee-owners a means of giving back to their communities. It provides financial support to nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged children and adults.
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. To date, the organization has awarded more than $7.2 million in donations to organizations throughout California, Arizona, Texas and beyond.
