Elevate Your Clients’ Philanthropic Impact

Nevada Community Foundation (NCF) works with financial advisors, accountants, and attorneys to maximize their clients’ giving. We take pride in offering a wide range of philanthropic solutions to cater to your client’s unique needs.

Our approach, known as Philanthropic Alpha, represents a strategic departure from conventional grant-making and transactional philanthropy. It’s about actively participating in innovative and collaborative community investments to amplify the impact of your client’s giving.

We aim to optimize the effectiveness of your client’s philanthropic efforts by adopting a more proactive, forward-thinking, and holistic approach to addressing social issues and driving meaningful change.

With the help of our Philanthropic Advisory Council (PAC), our goal is to empower you with practical and strategic solutions, ensuring that your client’s charitable endeavors align perfectly with their vision.

We quickly bring you up to speed with expert advice in a way that makes you look good in front of your clients. NCF is your resource when your clients speak about philanthropy.

Why Professional Advisors Refer Their Clients to Us


We recognize that your clients, influenced by their trusted advisors, establish donor advised funds and other charitable accounts. Our role is to provide you with streamlined, practical strategies to ensure your clients’ and future generations’ lasting philanthropic impact.

We offer a comprehensive array of charitable solutions, guiding clients through a range of available options, including donor advised funds, endowments, scholarship funds, designated funds, and field-of-interest funds.


We offer unparalleled service to your clients, no matter their account size. Your clients benefit from a dedicated team, always ready to address queries and concerns, ensuring a confidential and secure philanthropic journey.


Giving should be easy. Your clients can use charitable funds for all their giving without being constrained by unnecessary limitations and minimums.

  • No minimum initial contribution
  • No minimum gift or grant amounts
  • No limit to the number of successor advisors or charitable beneficiaries
  • Timely disbursements



With succession planning, your clients’ descendants can continue to give in perpetuity. As a community foundation, we are governed by an independent board and are not connected to a commercial enterprise that can be sold, merged, or dissolved. We will exist to serve generations to come.
