The heart behind the Clay Foundation is to fill a need. When founder Kevin Clay had the opportunity to be the first in his family to go to college, someone was there to help. They filled a need not only for his schooling, but also to help support his single mom who was working. That act of kindness helped shift the course for Kevin’s future. At every step of his journey, people were there to be a resource, mentor, and guide Kevin to help him pursue his dreams. At the Clay Foundation, we want to be there to help to others by doing the same. We want to be a hand to reach out, embrace others, and equip them to see the dreams in their hearts fulfilled. Together, we can fearlessly build the future for generations to come.
