Nevada Community Foundation

In partnership with its family of donors, the Nevada Community Foundation provides financial support to nonprofit organizations and other public charities with themes ranging from the arts to zoos primarily in Nevada but also across the nation.

The concept of a community foundation is as simple as it is brilliant: community foundations empower and strengthen the resources already in the community. It provides an easy and effective way for people to achieve their charitable dreams, whatever they may be.

The foundation maximizes a donor's gift through cutting-edge planned giving and sound, pooled investing. It keeps a finger on the pulse of the community and solves problems with high impact and thoughtful philanthropy.

The foundation opens the door for people to come together to address pressing issues and share creative ideas
