SAN ANTONIO (DECEMBER 17, 2015) – As part of its effort to help build strong communities, the Sundt Foundation donated more than $11,000 to three nonprofit organizations in Texas this quarter. Employee donations, matched dollar-for-dollar by the company, fund Sundt Foundation grants.
Sundt employees personally visited and presented grants to the charities as part of Sundt’s commitment to improve the communities where it operates. The Sundt Foundation awarded grants to the following nonprofit organizations across Texas:
- Ronald McDonald House Charities (San Antonio) received a $2,832 grant that will help the organization continue to support families who must travel outside of their community to provide the proper medical treatment for their children. The Ronald McDonald house serves as a place for families to feel safe and welcome, creating a “home-away-from-home”.

- Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (Dallas) is a world leader in the treatment of pediatric orthopedic conditions.
