Joshua Lindsey Utah – Haloti Ngata Family Foundation

Joshua Lindsey Utah & American Business Brokers attended the 3rd annual Haloti Ngata Family Foundation Lua in Salt Lake City Utah. The event was held at the little America Hotel on June 30, 2017. American Business Brokers had the honor of being a corporate sponsor to assist in the foundation’s cause of providing ACT & SAT test prep for kids who need it most. A little bit about the foundation and Haloti is as follows:

Five-time NFL Pro Bowl defensive tackle, Haloti Ngata, and his wife, Christina, founded the Haloti Ngata Family Foundation in 2012 to provide charitable resources to deserving individuals and organizations throughout the United States.

You may notice a red “OFA” in the middle of the foundation’s black logo.  “Ofa” is the Tongan word for “love” and is also the name of Haloti’s late-mother.  Ofa’s dedication to improving the lives of others during her life remains an inspiration for the foundation to follow — which is why the foundation memorialized her name in the logo.

Solomone and Ofa Ngata

The Ngatas created the Ofa Ngata College Preparation Fund in 2015.  This fund, operated in partnership with our friends, the Salt Lake Education Foundation, is used to carry on the vision of Haloti’s late-mother, Ofa, by providing college-preparation resources to high school students in the Salt Lake City School District. The fund has provided ACT preparation classes for over 150 students in its first year and we anticipate assisting approximately 400 more during the 2016-2017 school year.
