Andersen Corporate Foundation

What is Andersen Corporate Foundation Grant?

The legacy of the Andersen Corporation in supporting their community goes way back to its company’s beginnings in 1902. In their earlier years, their founders Hans and Sadie Angersen, their children, Molly, Fred and Herbert were very active in their community. They participated in the success and growth of the communities wherein they worked and lived. They have always been modest about being generous and they gave anonymous gifts.

The business leaders of the Andersen Corporation founded the Andersen Corporate Foundation (formerly the Bayport Foundation) as a private nonprofit corporation in Minnesota in 1941. The purpose was to help improve the community in St. Croix Valley which is the location of the Andersen Corporation headquarters. The corporation has since then provided funds to the Foundation.
