Shown are Mercury Marine president John Pfeifer (center), flanked by Marty Chy, board president of the Fond du Lac Area United Way, and Amber Kilawee, executive director of the Fond du Lac Area United Way.

The Brunswick Public Foundation said it awarded grants to multiple charitable organizations, including three United Way chapters where Mercury Marine employees work and live.

The United Way chapters of Fond du Lac and Oshkosh, Wis., and Stillwater, Okla. received the grants. All three chapters also receive annual contributions from Mercury employee programs.

Brunswick said the value of the foundation’s grants to the three United Way chapters is close to $100,000.

“We are delighted to present this grant to the United Way,” Mercury Marine president John Pfeifer said in a statement. “The Brunswick Public Foundation does a fantastic job of honoring our local United Way chapters, and we at Mercury continue to support those chapters with our own internal fundraising campaigns. Supporting the needs of the communities where we live and work is both a responsibility and an opportunity, and we’re glad to help.”

Mercury Marine recently started its annual biweekly payroll giving campaign for the United Way and continues to participate in fundraisers that include a parking raffle, a Halloween jar event and Drive 4 UR Community event.
