The Breuers

As president of my family-owned business, Hueber-Breuer Construction, I believe that my responsibilities extend beyond business operations. Supporting the community that my family has called home for generations is always at the forefront of my mind.

My father created a donor-advised fund at the Community Foundation in 1991. The fund allowed him to engage me and my siblings in charitable giving in our early adolescent ages. Now, my children have become actively engaged, unifying our family giving now and in the future.

My wife, Amy, and I use our donor-advised fund to introduce philanthropy to our children by allowing them to choose a nonprofit each year to receive a grant from the fund. Just in the last five years, the Hueber-Breuer Fund has supported more than fifty local charitable organizations that serve various causes related to human services, public and societal benefit, arts, culture and humanities, education and the environment.

I appreciate the ease and accessibility provided by the fund. Every fall, I meet with my financial advisor to go over my investment plan and capacity to make charitable contributions for the year ahead. As my family weighs requests from various local nonprofit organizations throughout the year, I simply email the Community Foundation staff to request the grants that are to be distributed from the fund.

Our family’s giving through our fund at the Community Foundation is helping to shape the quality of life in this community. I hope by instilling these values and being affiliated with a reputable organization like the Community Foundation, we are indirectly inspiring others to invest in the future of our community.

I envision my family’s giving will be used collectively as a vehicle to support worthy causes throughout the community for generations to come. I hope that more families in our community are thinking about the impact of giving multi-generationally. This community has been good to us and good to our employees, and we want to ensure it remains a great place to raise families for years to come.
