NV Energy and its Foundation gave approximately $5.4 million last year to support nearly 500 nonprofits statewide. These contributions were funded by the company, not its customers.

NV Energy provides funds to local nonprofit organizations that support public education, protection of the environment, youth development, arts and multi-cultural outreach, and health and human services.

Standing behind NV Energy's philanthropic commitment were its employees who volunteered 44,830 hours of their time to help nonprofits statewide.

“Our role in the community goes far beyond keeping the lights on,” said Tony Sanchez, Senior Vice President of Government and Community Strategy for NV Energy. “Our company and our employees take tremendous pride in helping make a positive difference in Nevada through both our philanthropic and volunteer efforts.”

Grants and sponsorships were given to 269 southern Nevada nonprofits including the UNLV, CSN and Nevada State College Foundations, the Clark County School District Public Education Foundation, Teach for America, The Smith Center for Performing Arts, and the American Red Cross of Southern Nevada. In northern Nevada, 228 organizations received grants and sponsorships, including the UNR Foundation, the Nature Conservancy, Boy Scouts of America Nevada Area Council, Nevada STEM Coalition and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.
