The nonprofit Brunswick Public Foundation has awarded grants totaling nearly $350,000 to seven organizations and select United Way groups.

The 2017 recipients are:

  • American Council on Exercise, a professional and health coach certification organization that since 1985 has sought to set high industry standards
  • American Rivers, which since 1973 has worked to protect wild rivers, restore damaged ones and conserve clean water sources
  • Fish America, a group formed in 1983 that supports restoring marine and estuary habitats, improving water quality, increasing fish populations and advancing fisheries research
  • National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, established by Congress in 1984, which has worked to protect and restore fish, wildlife, plants and habitats
  • Ocean Conservancy, which has educated and empowered people to protect the oceans since 1972
  • PHIT America Foundation, a cause and campaign dedicated to increasing physical activity and fitness. It was launched in 2013.

The foundation, which is governed by a four-member board, also approved annual contributions to select local United Way organizations serving areas with Brunswick operations that have active employee fundraising and support campaigns.
