The BRANDT Foundation was established in 2012 as a philanthropic extension of BRANDT, Inc. The Brandt family has always stood with their communities and as their company grew, so did the opportunities to give back.
“BRANDT has always tried to be a generous company and we believe in doing well by doing good.”
-Rick Brandt, President & CEO of BRANDT
Today, the BRANDT Foundation offers donations, grants and support to the charities, organizations and communities that reside in the same area of the company; geographically and industry related.
The BRANDT Foundation has clear targets for funding. Funding recipients must be U.S.-based, 501(c)3 charities in good standing for at least three years.
Priorities include support for career development in agriculture and agriculture education programs. This would include organizations like the National FFA and the 4-H and college scholarship programs for agriculture students. Note: we do not supply direct support to individuals.

Priorities include support of charitable Ag organizations seeking to help in the production of food, fuel and fiber and to generally advance agriculture.
Health & Human Services
Priorities include charitable organizations focused on innovative approaches to solving the challenges of poverty and food security. Exclusions: general operating and capital support for hospitals
The average grant size is between $1,000 and $10,000.
