Springfield, Illinois (29 July 2015) – The BRANDT Foundation made four grants to four very different charitable organizations at its regularly-scheduled July meeting.

The 2015 grantees include:

  • The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Garden Foundation, Inc.
  • The Historic Marbold Farmstead Association
  • The Teton Regional Land Trust
  • The AgrAbility Program through the University of Illinois Foundation

“I’m proud that we’re able to help these worthy organizations,” said Rick Brandt, President & CEO of BRANDT. “We received many applications and the Board decided that these best fit the Foundation’s overall mission.”

The mission of The BRANDT Foundation is “to provide meaningful assistance and support to the communities, farms and families where BRANDT has facilities.”

The BRANDT Foundation is a private foundation, funded initially by donations from BRANDT Consolidated, Inc. and BRANDT employees.
