Funzeleo was one of select beneficiaries of the 2015 Halliburton Charity Golf Tournament which raised a record amount of money for nonprofits across the US. These funds will be used to advance Funzeleo’s mission to inspire and prepare African youth for high-demand science and math-based careers.
“We take our commitment to helping the communities where we live and work seriously,” said Dave Lesar, Halliburton Chairman and CEO. “We are thrilled to give over $3 million to advance the mission of this year’s recipient organizations and thank the participants.”
Scot Anderson, Funzeleo’s board chair, who attended the check presentation event, applauded the support: “We are truly honored to have a partner like Halliburton on our side. This donation will have profound impact on Funzeleo’s mission in Africa. We are heartened by this recognition.”
