An annual endowment grant can make a big difference in how you serve those you serve.

The Community Foundation manages endowments for many local nonprofits.  Read how CARE Chest uses their endowment grants here. By scrolling through the list of funds you will see Community Foundation endowment funds that support a wide variety of nonprofits in our region.

We know your fundraising efforts are focused on gaining support for today’s operations. But consider the opportunities that an annual income grant would open for your budget. Let your donors know you’re planning for the future and show them how they can help

We will manage your assets and reserves to ensure that you continue to serve our region for years to come. Our investment capabilities give you access to world-class financial and investing expertise that otherwise might be unavailable. A member of our Gift Planning Team is happy to talk with your organization’s leaders about its benefits and planned giving vehicles that can help your donors support your endowment. An organizational endowment can be established with a starting balance of $50,000.

Planned Giving

The Community Foundation is proud to work with local nonprofits and offer our planned giving expertise. One way we do this is by working in partnership with a nonprofit that has a donor interested in setting up a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) to benefit the organization’s endowment fund at the Community Foundation. We will help your organization set up one of these vehicles free of charge.

Advantages of working with the Community Foundation of Western Nevada:

  • Risk is dispersed in a pool of multiple contracts.
  • We are available to educate your board, staff and donors about CGAs.

Call the Community Foundation at 775-333-5499 to talk about opening a nonprofit endowment or to meet with your donors about establishing a CGA to benefit your organization’s endowment at the Community Foundation.
