The Community Foundation of Elko County received a huge boost with an unexpected donation of $35,000 from Nevada Gold Mines. Nevada Gold Mines is a member of the Community Foundation of Elko County Builders’ Club, a group of businesses and families that are laying the foundation for a permanent source of funds to strengthen the communities of Elko County.
This Nevada Gold Mines donation will be added to the Community Foundation of Elko County Endowment. As the Endowment grows over time the Nevada Gold Mines contribution will grow as well. Annual grants to benefit the community will be made from the interest earned, leaving their gift to grow and give for generations.
Terri Gage, Community Foundation Elko County Chair said, “It is amazing to be part of a community with companies like Nevada Gold Mines who take corporate responsibility to the highest level. We certainly appreciate it and the long-term impact it will have on this community for years to come.”
