Today BRANDT announced the formation of The BRANDT Foundation to organize the company's charitable giving.

"BRANDT has always tried to be a generous company and we believe in doing well by doing good," said Rick Brandt, President & CEO of BRANDT. "But our giving has never been well organized. The BRANDT Foundation will enable us to be more strategic with our giving so that we can stretch our dollars to positively affect more people."

The Foundation's mission is focused on helping the nationwide communities in which BRANDT operates.

"The BRANDT Foundation will work to support the charitable causes and key issues that are important to our employees, with our customers and in our communities," said Rick Brandt. "Our final list of beneficiaries has not been determined, but we will establish a list of charities that are important to the communities that we serve."

The BRANDT Foundation will be a private foundation, funded initially by donations from BRANDT Consolidated, Inc. and BRANDT employees. Beneficiaries will be determined by The Foundation's trustees.
