FINAO Donates to Community Organizations

We are proud to support a number of foundations and nonprofit organizations whose programs provide needed support to our communities.

Every time someone in the FINAO community purchases a cap, tee-shirt or other merchandise through our online store, we donate a portion of the proceeds to such organizations, including those listed below.

We are pleased to have your help in supporting these wonderful organizations and worthy causes.

Gildas_club

Gilda's Club is named in honor of Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989. Gilda dreamed that all people with cancer, as well as their families and friends, would have access to the same kind of emotional and social support that she received during her illness. Gilda's club strives to make that dream a reality. The FINAO community is proud to contribute to this important endeavor.

Taelors_house

Taelor's House Foundation was established in 2005 in honor of Taelor Roenigk. The foundation donates time and money to a variety of charitable causes that were special to Taelor. The organization's contributions include donations of time and money to charities that give kids with disabilities the same opportunities afforded to those who are more fortunate, as well as financial support for scholarships and endowments to assist students who are pursuing degrees in the fields of special education and medicine. The FINAO community is pleased to contribute to these causes.

Since SkiDuck (Skiing and snowboarding for Disabled andUnderprivileged Children and older Kids) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of disabled and underprivileged children by sharing the joys of skiing and snowboarding. SkiDuck's first year was quite a success story. From it's conception in August '09 by Executive Director Clint Lunde it was a less than six months until SkiDUCK had it's first outing at Squaw Valley on February 7, 2010. More than 30 students from Reno's North Valleys middle and high schools skied and snowboarded for their first time ever! Middle-schooler Corey Lundy summed up the day - "I felt like Superman, I was on top of the world!"
