Type of Grantmaker

Independent foundation






Incorporated in 1952 in WI - Mr. Siebert, founder of Milwaukee Electric Tool Company, "elected to give his entire interest in his company to God, using the Siebert Foundation to accomplish this gift." The son of a Lutheran minister, Mr. Siebert had made a vow that if his company survived the Great Depression, he would give a part of the company to the Lord. The company prospered beyond his expectations and the foundation is a result of the pact. The Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. was sold in 1976
