In 2009, after years of donating to local charities, our board created the Sunwest Charitable Foundation, which donates a percentage of our annual profits in the form of grant funding and matching gifts. The primary mission of the foundation is the care of vulnerable children and families and supporting organizations that meet food, housing, healthcare, safety, and education needs. We have donated over $2.5 million to support families and children worldwide. Through our partnership with the Hovde Foundation, we have also opened halfway houses for vulnerable children in Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, Malawi, Peru, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, and Bolivia.
