Estelle J. Kelsey Foundation

Our Foundation's Mission: 

The Foundation is organized and operated exclusively for the educational, religious and  charitable purposes within the United States of America. However it leans towards serving the needs of Northern Nevada.

Our founder Estelle J. Kelsey wanted to help those in need to have a better life. She had a special place in her heart for children in need. Her hope was to help them grow, learn, and fulfill their dreams and aspirations.

The Estelle J. Kelsey Foundation was established in the state of Nevada in 2014. It was organized and is operated to make grants primarily to strengthen the existing programs and projects of civic and cultural, social services, medicine and science, as well as religious and youth facilities and programs.
