NV Energy Foundation awards $2 million in grants to 113 nonprofits

The NV Energy Foundation announced Oct. 19 it awarded $2,097,550 in grants to 113 Nevada nonprofit organizations between March to September.

“The nonprofits awarded grants are doing remarkable work to improve Nevada,” Tony Sanchez, Executive Vice President of Business Development and External Relations at NV Energy, said in a statement. “As Nevada still recovers from the pandemic, NV Energy is proud to support our diverse communities through organizations providing on-the-ground support, resources and innovation.”

According to an NV Energy press release, the company’s foundation awarded grants to 56 Southern Nevada and 44 in the north, among them Rebuilding Together Northern Nevada and Truckee Meadows Tomorrow. Additionally, 13 statewide nonprofits were awarded grants.

Of the amount doled out, $246,000 was from NV Energy’s new Clean Energy Access for Nevada (CLEAN) grant, the goal of which is to “drive innovation among organizations to develop projects that advance workforce development and promote clean energy benefits, especially in rural and historically underrepresented communities throughout Nevada,” per the release.

That chunk of funding went to Envirolution, Faith Organizing Alliance, Las Vegas Indian Center and Make the Road Nevada.

Further, the foundation awarded $5,000 each to Carson Valley Community Food Closet, Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada, and Red Cross of Northern Nevada in response to this summer’s wildfires.
