DALLAS (September 16, 2022) – The Sundt Foundation awarded $9,200 to four nonprofits across the Metroplex during its current giving round. Brighter Tomorrow, Hope Center of Autism, Special Abilities of North Texas and Oak Cliff Veggie Project each received $2,300 grants.
“We are thankful that we can give to these deserving organizations,” said Barbara Terry, the Sundt Foundation’s North Texas region board member. “They all strive to make life better for those in need, and our grant will help them reach their goals.”
Brighter Tomorrow’s grant will support its emergency shelter, which helps domestic violence and sexual assault survivors.
Hope Center for Autism will use its grant for applied behavior analysis therapy that helps children from birth to five on the autism spectrum with their social and emotional development needs.
Special Abilities of North Texas will use the grant to continue their daytime support services for those with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
Oak Cliff Veggie Project will use the grant to aid its efforts to bring healthy food to low-income communities through community micro-farms.
The Sundt Foundation awards quarterly grants to local North Texas-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.
