The Children’s Foundation of Las Vegas is governed by an 8-seat volunteer board, including a four-person executive team composed of individuals donating their time to the community by focusing on securing funds to meet the individual needs of abused and neglected children who are in or have been in foster care in Southern Nevada. By securing resources and hosting events, the Foundation is able to provide opportunities for these children and youth to gain a sense of normalcy as they navigate through the foster care system.

Diversity & Equality Statement 

Our vision and mission mirror our key conviction that all individuals have a place and merit, decency, equity, and inclusivity. 

Our solidarity comes from our variety and we praise the obvious and undetectable characteristics that make every individual one of a kind, including race, sex, age, sexuality, capacity, religion, public starting point, sex personality, and different characters. We focus on adjusting our way of life and strategic approaches to be a guide of variety, value, consideration, and a place for all individuals. 

Contributions or donations may be tax deductible pursuant to the provisions of section 170.c. of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, 26 U.S.C. 170.c.
