The Brady Corporation Foundation

The Brady Corporation Foundation is a non-profit, non stock corporation, established in 2005, which serves as Brady’s primary vehicle for charitable contributions around the world.   Grants are made once each year in the month of July.

Grants generally focus on programs that work to develop current and future leaders for our businesses and our communities.  In addition, grants in Europe give preference to programs serving disadvantaged young people in the region; while grants in Asia also target environmental challenges to the region.

The Good Money Challenge

Global Marketing Director, IDS, and Marquette alum, Jim Gross

The Brady Corporation Foundation has partnered with Marquette University to sponsor The Good Money Challenge. The event gives aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to submit a business plan that has a positive impact on social or environmental issues. The challenge enables Brady to provide a unique development opportunity for its employees. Employees coach the teams through various business issues and serve as judges for the competition. Winners are awarded and gifted grants to help fund their ideas.
