SACRAMENTO, Calif. (June 13, 2022) – The Sundt Foundation awarded $12,000 to three nonprofits in Northern California during its current giving round. The City of Refuge Sacramento, Kesem at Santa Clara University and Sacramento Children’s Home each received a grant.
“All three organizations are great causes, and they are all very deserving,” said Madison Jones, the Sundt Foundation President and Northern California region board member. “It is a great feeling to contribute to organizations that directly affect the wellbeing and futures of children in the community.”
Sacramento Children’s Home received $5,000 to aid in higher food costs, diapers and other urgent needs in its Crisis Nursery. Thanks in part to the contribution from the Sundt Foundation, the Crisis Nursery can continue to provide a haven for at-risk children.
The City of Refuge Sacramento mission will use its $4,000 grant to combat the adverse effects of domestic violence towards women and children through a safe and structured home setting, after school programs and various support resources.
Kesem at Santa Clara University works to provide a community for children who have a parent with cancer. The Sundt Foundation $3,000 contribution will support its programs such as friends and family day, fall programming, cabin chats and its free week-long summer camp, Camp Kesem.
The Sundt Foundation awards quarterly grants to local Sacramento-area and Bay area charities that support disadvantaged children and families. Nonprofits are selected through an application process and reviewed by a committee of local Sundt employee-owners.
