About Rockstad Foundation

The Rockstad Foundation is legacy to the Rockstad family’s philanthropic core values of giving back to the communities it served during ownership of Dan’s Super Market, Inc. Dan’s hallmark reputation began when Roy Rockstad and his partner purchased the first store in 1949. Dan’s contributed to numerous community organizations over the 66 years it was owned by the Rockstad family.

The Rockstad Foundation has expanded its focus to include global causes and recognizes the importance of continuing this legacy by supporting a world of mutual trust and respect through acts of human kindness and leadership development.
