The Community Foundation’s motto is "Connecting people who care with causes that matter." The “causes that matter” include the many vital, active organizations that comprise the area’s nonprofit community.

The professional advisors we work with and our fundholders – the “people who care” – appreciate the value of being able to participate in such robust nonprofit involvement, especially given the hard times that have been experienced throughout the region and the world of late.

We invite you to check out the Nonprofit Connections page on our website. There you can find eight categories of nonprofit organizations that align with your passions. Or, for professional advisors, the page is a great resource as you assist your clients in their philanthropic planning. Categories include:

  • Arts & Culture
  • Children & Family
  • Community Development
  • Education
  • Environment & Animals
  • Health
  • Human Services
  • Other

If you are a nonprofit organization, it’s important to know that fundholders and community members like to learn which nonprofits are working in the areas of their charitable interest. Add your website and your organization's three current funding priorities on Nonprofit Connections so potential donors can find you. It is easy to sign up. Philanthropic Advisors Lyndsey Crossley or Lauren Renda can walk you through the simple process of being added to the Nonprofit Connections page. Call us at 775-333-5499 or email your questions to

If you are a nonprofit that does not currently have a fund set up through the Community Foundation, you can find out more by contacting us by phone or email as listed above.

Our community is grateful for the vital work of our dedicated nonprofit organizations, their leaders, boards, staff and volunteers.

Whether you are a professional advisor, fundholder, nonprofit organization, or a member of the community, the Community Foundation and the many resources on our website (, are all focused on serving you while impacting our region.

The Community Foundation of Northern Nevada is strengthening our community through philanthropy and leadership by connecting people who care with causes that matter. We welcome your call at 775-333-5499 or email us at
