IRVINE, Calif. (December 27, 2021) – The Sundt Foundation awarded a grant of $5,000 to Build Futures and $1,100 to Miracle House Foundation during its current giving round.
“We are always excited to give back to our communities and assist these organizations that constantly strive to improve as many lives as possible,” said Rachel Perez, Irvine-area Sundt Foundation Board member. “The surrounding areas where our employee-owners live, and work are continuing to be enhanced thanks to these two well-deserving organizations.”
Build Futures strongly believes that there should be no young person without a home. The grant from the Sundt Foundation will provide the organization with the resources they need to provide homes and support to disadvantaged children continuously.
The grant received by Miracle House Foundation will cover rent expenses to free up other forces to be allocated to workforce development activities and post-graduate self-sufficiency. The program located in Lawndale is sober living transitional housing for up to 24 men at once.
The Sundt Foundation awards quarterly grants to Southern California area charities that support disadvantaged children and families. Nonprofits are selected through an application process and reviewed by a local Sundt employee-owner committee.
