About Us

Our Story

Our mission is to steward donors’ charitable giving, now and for generations to come, and to provide leadership, vision and impactful community investment.

Nevada Community Foundation (NCF) was incorporated in 1989 with a $1 million initial gift. In the last ten years, NCF has grown from $15 million in asset size to over $180 million. NCF currently serves more than 150 donors, with funds ranging from a few thousand dollars to tens of millions. Since the organization’s inception, NCF donors have given more than $100 million to causes they care about in Nevada and beyond. In March 2020, NCF was tapped to serve as the fiscal agent for the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, which was established by the Nevada COVID-19 Response, Relief, and Recovery Task Force, a public-private partnership overseen by Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak’s office and the Nevada Health Response Center.

Currently, the Nevada Community Foundation houses more than 150 charitable funds with over $210 million in assets, and meets all national standards from the Council on Foundations.
