Nelson Family Foundation 

Established in 2014, the Todd and Shari Nelson Family Foundation supports charitable organizations that create and sustain lasting solutions that enrich the quality of life of present and future generations.

Our mission is to improve the lives of individuals in the communities we serve through health and education initiatives.

From our heart, this foundation was envisioned as an extension of who we are, shaped with a vision of doing wonderful things. We are dedicated to creating opportunities that improve the lives and the futures of those in need, those who strive to be better, and those caring individuals who share in our passions and dedication in making the world a better place. The Nelson Family Foundation is steeped in heritage second only to our strong family values, and it is through those eyes that we look at how we can give back to those in need. There is no greater reward than supporting others.

Todd and Shari’s entire family from their parents down to their kids have had input on the focus of our Foundation.
