Our Staff

A Team of Experienced Professionals

Gian F. Brosco, Esq.

A former attorney and banker, Gian brings more than twenty years’ experience in the fields of philanthropy, law, fundraising and banking to his role as President and CEO of Nevada Community Foundation (NCF). He spent four years with The Rhode Island Foundation as a development officer and gift planning advisor before joining U.S. Trust Bank of America, where he served as Vice President for the Philanthropic Management Group. While at U.S. Trust, Gian counseled individuals, families and private foundations on their philanthropy and advised institutional clients around governance and nonprofit management issues. He also served as an expert for the bank’s clients on the subjects of philanthropy and planned giving, leadership and governance, and fiduciary and tax matters. In his career, Gian has advised more than 500 public charities, private foundations, individuals and families on all aspects of charitable giving and philanthropy and is one of fewer than 150 BoardSource Certified Governance Trainers, globally.

During his tenure at Nevada Community Foundation (2008- present), the organization has experienced exponential growth during a period of extraordinary economic upheaval, growing from $14.9mm to more than $150mm, today. Equally, the Foundation has reached unprecedented influence as a thought leader and catalyst for change in the community. 

Gian advises nonprofit organizations in board governance, change management and fundraising and currently serves as Chairman of Gift Planning Advisors, a Nevada association of professionals dedicated to incorporating philanthropy into their clients’ wealth planning. He received his Bachelor of Arts in English from Georgetown University and completed his Juris Doctor from New England School of Law in 1990. A Greenspun Distinguished Professor of Practice at UNLV’s School of Public Policy and Leadership, Gian taught courses in 21st Century Leadership and Public Policy. He is licensed to practice law (inactive status) in Rhode Island and Texas and is a sought after speaker on philanthropy, leadership and governance, fundraising and change management.
