A Fund For Good. Forever.
The Campaign for Our Community has a simple goal—to raise $10 million for an endowment that will yield more than $400,000 annually, and grow continually, to address community concerns as they arise and take care of our region long into the future. Today. Tomorrow. Every year. 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 we will do when the Community Endowment reaches $10,000,000)!
Congratulations to the five nonprofits in Reno who were chosen to receive grants from the 2nd annual Community Endowment grants. 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 with a short description of the funded program.

Renown Health Foundation

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.
