Since it was founded over a century ago, SUNDT has been dedicated to improving the communities where it operates. In 1999, we expanded this effort by creating the SUNDT Foundation, a separate non-profit organization focused on the needs of disadvantaged children and adults. The Foundation receives most of its funding through employee contributions, which are matched by the company. To date, we have provided more than $6 million in aid to community organizations in Arizona, California, and Texas.
Since 2001, the Sundt Foundation has championed a special fundraising effort in memory of one of its employees. Mike Gaines was a member of the Sundt family for two decades before losing his battle with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. These annual events, including golf tournaments in Tucson, Phoenix, San Diego, Sacramento, San Antonio, and a skeet shoot in Tucson, to date have raised $611,700. All of the money has been given to the Muscular Dystrophy Association to be used for ALS research.
