A Fund For Good. Forever.
The Community Fund Grants were modest in 2017. They have grown since then and will continue to grow as the Community Endowment builds. Imagine what can be done when the Community Endowment reaches $10,000,000!
Fund Advisory Committee
The Community Fund grants are chosen by a committee of Community Foundation board members, staff, and community volunteers.
Six organizations were chosen to receive grants from the Community Fund in 2019. These programs were rewarded because they touch the most vulnerable in our community in
vital (perhaps life-saving) and lasting ways.
Child Assault Prevention
Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence
Northern Nevada Literacy Council
Sierra Nevada Journeys
Congratulations to the six nonprofits in Reno who were chosen to receive grants from the 2nd annual Community Endowment grant cycle. Two of the organizations are new and this may be your first introduction to their programs. The organizations were chosen because they work with distinct values of community strengthening, inclusiveness, and volunteerism. The grantees are listed below in alphabetical order and linked to a description of the funded program.
Seniors in Service
Renown Health Foundation
Urban Lotus Project
Veterans Guest House
The Community Foundation Board and Staff recommended that the 1st annual grants generated by the Community Endowment go to the Eddy House and Sierra Association of Foster Families to support the ongoing Youth Network Initiative.
