The Gene Haas Foundation Blessed YLA

YLA Has Been Blessed!

We are pleased to share that the Gene Haas Foundation has awarded the Youth Leadership Authority (YLA) $50,000! The Gene Haas Foundation was established in 1999, by Haas Automation, Inc. Founder and CEO Gene Haas, to support the needs of the local community through grants to local charities. This extremely generous gift will serve to move the YLA mission forward!
