Throughout the community and campus, the Nevada State College Foundation works to change not only individual lives, but whole family trees. Our impact on first-generation college students and their communities is especially explosive, as graduates’ deeper level of knowledge and expertise begins to serve new sectors of society and elevate global conversations. Our ability to grow and thrive absolutely depends on the generous support of donors as tuition and state support simply can’t cover the full cost. Your gifts enable student scholarships, construction projects, daily operations, and numerous initiatives that support our students and faculty. Please consider a tax-deductible contribution in any amount to our general fund, or one of our crucial need campaigns. Join your community leaders and neighbors and BE OUR PARTNER; every gift makes a difference.

The Nevada State College Foundation was established in 2001 by a group of local visionaries, and our current board of influential education advocates continues to forward their mission to encourage and promote the growth and improvement of Nevada State College, and to receive and administer your private gifts to the college.
