Sundt Foundation Awards $7,000 to Local Nonprofits

Two Bay Area organizations receive quarterly grants

SAN JOSE, Calif. (Aug. 2, 2016) – Sundt Construction, Inc.’s northern California employees have selected two Bay Area nonprofit organizations — Okizu and Rebuilding Together-Silicon Valley — each to receive $3,500 Sundt Foundation grants, totaling $7,000 this quarter.

Okizu provides peer-support programs for children and families affected by childhood cancer based on the community-forming nature of a residential camp experience. The organization collaborates with pediatric oncology treatment centers throughout Northern California to support and facilitate these programs.

Rebuilding Together-Silicon Valley brings volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners in need. The organization will use the funds to provide critical home repairs to more than 300 clients, as well as assist nonprofit organizations with facility maintenance and repairs.

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.
