Often when I speak with someone about the Community Foundation they are surprised at our involvement with so many local philanthropic works. The reason is because we work with our donors and others and we like any recognition to be focused on them, or the charities we are supporting, rather than the Community Foundation.
One such project in which we hold great pride is the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum. We were privileged to be consulted on this project in the earliest stages, working with the museum’s Founder, Chris Riche on grants for the conceptual stage and plans, talking with other foundations and donors about the project, making many grants to support the Museum at virtually every stage, the most recent grant being made last year through our Partnership Grant program.
