Hy-Vee Donation Commemorates Clark’s Scoring Mark

Hy-Vee is donating $35,690 to the Caitlin Clark Foundation in honor of Clark becoming the highest scoring female basketball player in NCAA Division I history.

She passed the previous mark of 3,527 career points during the first quarter of the University of Iowa’s women’s basketball game against Michigan on Feb. 15. Clark, who finished the game with a personal-best 49 points, now has 3,569 points for her career. 

The Caitlin Clark Foundation’s mission is to uplift and improve the lives of youth and their communities through education, nutrition and sport – three pillars Clark believes were foundational in her success.

“We are absolutely thrilled to see Caitlin reach this historic milestone in her career,” said Matt Nickell, VP of sports marketing for Hy-Vee.

“Not only is Caitlin an incredible athlete, but she’s also an outstanding example of the fundamentals we try to live out at Hy-Vee – dedication, respect, sincerity and caring. We’re honored to partner with Caitlin and look forward to seeing many more amazing accomplishments from her both on and off the court.”

Earlier this year, Hy-Vee introduced a limited-time cereal, with all proceeds from the cereal going to the foundation. Caitlin’s Crunch Time is available only at select Iowa stores while supplies last.
