Community Foundation of Northern Nevada – a small change to reflect a large territory
What’s in a name? If you are one of the growing groups of Community Foundation fundholders from Elko to Minden, we hope our new name will convey respect and inclusion.
Fundholders from Carson City, Minden, Gardnerville, Eureka, Lovelock, Winnemucca, Elko, Spring Creek, Tonopah, and even in several communities outside of Nevada have established funds within the Community Foundation. Significant scholarship funds are designated to help students in Spring Creek, Churchill, Douglas, and Lowry (Winnemucca) High Schools. The Community Foundation of Elko County, an affiliate fund, has its own Fund Advisory Board and is growing to be a valued resource of annual grants in the Elko area. We are honored to serve Nevadans across the state and are grateful they joined the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada.
We expect our name to transition over this year, starting with digital communications. Our EIN will not change, and your fund name or your legacy fund bequest will not need updating. The Community Foundation website URL will remain nevadafund.org. What will change is that our name will more clearly describe the breadth of philanthropy carried out by generous Nevadans.
