Nebo Education Foundation is extremely grateful for the generous $10,000 donation from the Tony Finau Foundation through the connection of the Clyde Companies. This generous donation will help fund Nebo Foundation grants that directly impact Nebo students. Some of these grants include inspiring students to fulfill their dreams and talents with musical instruments, STEM experiences, athletics, technology, literacy, and the arts.  

Who is Tony Finau? Tony is a pro golfer on the PGA Tour. After five successful years, Tony’s excited to utilize that momentum and accomplish even more in year six. As this article is being written, Tony is competing in the 2020 Masters Tournament on November 12-15, 2020, at Augusta National Golf Course. (We hope he wins it all.)

Jeremy Hafen, President of the Clyde Business Group, said, “At Clyde Companies, we believe strongly in Building a Better Community. We value our relationship with both the Tony Finau Foundation and the Nebo Education Foundation as they look to fulfill their missions of supporting the education of our children."

“We are excited to partner with the Tony Finau Foundation. One of their stated goals for 2020 is to 'serve the communities surrounding us... and address their needs head on.' We are so grateful that their vision and goals align with ours. Their generous donation will allow the Nebo Education Foundation to provide educational opportunities that will aid in meeting the needs of our students and teachers head on. Best of luck this weekend, Tony. We’re cheering you on!” exclaimed President-Elect, Marla Bird.

The Tony Finau Foundation’s mission is built on a family discovered experience through the game of golf. It aims to empower and inspire youth and their families to discover, develop, and achieve the best of their gifts and talents through the game of golf, educational funding, and core family values.

“It is so rewarding to see the face of a teacher light up and the children’s big smiles when we bring in a check. These monies enhance the educational experience for many students across the district. This funding could not be possible without the generosity of friends like the Tony Finau Foundation and the Clyde Companies,” stated Lana Hiskey, Executive Director of the Nebo Education Foundation.

Nebo Education Foundation continues to bring businesses, donors, and volunteers together to benefit local school children in Nebo School District. The Nebo Foundation disperses tax deductible donations to schools in the form of grants, equipment, books, supplies, etc.
