Donations will support organizations working for children, healthcare, and families in crisis.


Irvine, Calif. (April 10, 2023) – The Sundt Foundation recently awarded $9,000 in grants to three Irvine charities.

“Being able to help these organizations achieve their goals is special,” said Rachel Perez, the Sundt Foundation’s Irvine region board member. “This is an ongoing effort building on Sundt’s long-standing history of giving back to the community.”

Code Read, The Miracle Project, and The Priority Center were awarded $3,000 each.

Code Read provides children in low-income communities with books to keep at home and close the literacy gap.

The Miracle Project provides expressive arts and social skills classes to those with autism and other disabilities.

The Priority Center aims to deliver life-changing programs to assist people in crisis. The center provides early intervention and mental health services and advocacy to end the generational cycle of trauma, including prevention of child abuse and neglect.

The Sundt Foundation awards quarterly grants to charities in Orange County that support disadvantaged children and families. Nonprofits are selected through an application and review process led by a committee of local Sundt employee-owners.
