Established for the benefit of people in need in the Brillion area.
The Robert & Patricia Endries Family Foundation concentrates its giving on the needs of the Brillion community, where Bob and Pat built their successful businesses, Endries International Inc. and Professional Plating. They formed a private family foundation in 1985 to share their business success with the community, and then made it a self-governed supporting organization within the Community Foundation in 2005.
