Promoting Freedom and Prosperity


Freedom is Valuable and Requires Personal Responsibility

We must be reminded of these truths if we are to maintain freedom and its benefits. The Hayek Group provides ongoing education to Northern Nevadans that emphasizes the importance of freedom of thought, personal responsibility, and financial literacy. We accomplish through monthly dinner meetings that feature a guest speaker. Our primary philanthropic initiative is to make the Dave Ramsay “Foundations in Personal Finance” curriculum available to all Northern Nevada High Schools.

High Interest Loans

Statistics show that many Nevadans are struggling with high interest loans, paying only the minimum amount required. We must take personal responsibility for our financial freedom.

Inadequate Financial Knowledge

Inadequate financial knowledge and student loan debt have become a massive obstacle to success and financial freedom for Nevada graduates. Students (all Nevadans) desperately need better financial education.

Business Opportunities

Northern Nevada has prospered due to financial stimulus, free market economics, and the business-friendly environment it offers. We must protect the strategic advantages Nevada offers.

We are making a difference

Numerous generous donors (individuals, couples, and organizations) committed funds to achieve a big goal.

Education Initiative Progress

Goal: For 2022, The Hayek Group is seeking to expand its reach in Northern Nevada high schools with the Dave Ramsey Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum and create a new financial fitness program for college aged young people using the Financially Fit Employees product. We have just reached a deal to place the Ramsey curriculum in ACE Charter High School, a for year deal for $12,000. We have implemented a trial for the Financially Fit Employees program for 21 college aged youth. For that we need to raise $7,100.

ACE Charter High School Curriculum - $12,000

Financially Fit Employee Program $7,100

Funds committed $4,500 of $19,100

$14,600 remaining

Join Our Monthly Dinner

There are still other students in other high schools to reach in Northern Nevada, plus we are seeking to move into enhancing the financial fitness of college aged students (though not necessarily in college). Consequently, we still need you to join our effort.
