Gene Haas Foundation Charitable Donations

+

The Gene Haas Foundation was established in 1999 by Gene Haas, who is president and CEO of Haas Automation, co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing and owner of Haas F1 Team.

Haas believes in manufacturing, and the company he founded in 1983, Haas Automation, is America’s leading manufacturer of CNC machine tools. Haas’ commitment to American manufacturing led him to create his own foundation with an edict to focus efforts on manufacturing education, primarily in the form of scholarships for machinists and manufacturing industry engineers. Today, the Gene Haas Foundation awards scholarship grants to schools in the USA and Canada, with more than $50 million given to schools since its inception.

To apply for a manufacturing scholarship grant, please go to www.ghaasfoundation.org and fill out the application/questionnaire under GRANTS-Educational Institution. The instructor, along with the programs industry advisory committee, choose the students who are awarded scholarships.

Clint Bowyer Charitable Donations

+

The 79 Fund was established by NASCAR driver and Emporia native Clint Bowyer to benefit the children of Emporia. Clint’s desire to use the Emporia Community Foundation for his charity came from knowing the funds could be used in a variety of ways to help the children of Emporia. His first gift from the 79 Fund occurred in August 2008 when it was announced that all children ages 16 and under could swim at the Emporia Aquatic Center for free during the remainder of the season. Many children took advantage of this opportunity. With the beginning of an annual charity golf tournament and auction in 2008, Clint was well on his way to improving his hometown.

Kevin Harvick Charitable Donations

+

The Kevin Harvick Foundation was established in 2010 by Kevin and his wife, DeLana. The Foundation works to not only improve the quality of life, but to help underprivileged youth find and realize their dreams.

“There are many children who have dreams of becoming a race car driver, a policeman, a doctor or scientist, but don’t see a way to achieve those dreams,” said Kevin, “DeLana and I want to provide opportunities to children who might not realize their potential and give them the courage to pursue their dreams.”
