Community Foundation of Western Nevada



The Community Foundation of Western Nevada is a nonprofit organization committed to improving the lives of all area residents.


It does this by helping individuals, families and organizations meet their own philanthropic goals and by supporting the community’s nonprofits through our grant making, and endowment building services. It makes giving simple, powerful and personal.
