The NV Energy Foundation still maintains its four areas of focus of Arts/Culture, Education/STEM, Environment/Community Enhancement and Safety/Wellness, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NV Energy Foundation is prioritizing funding to organizations and programs that are working in COVID-19 response and recovery in the following ways:
- Meeting emergency or immediate needs through financial support
- Solving food insecurity
- Access to COVID-19 related healthcare
- Access to education and social/emotional support for youth
- Access to affordable and safe housing
- Workforce development

- Tie funding more closely to NV Energy's business purpose
- Strengthen relationships with 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and the community at large
- Include the potential for employee volunteer involvement
- Include the potential for collaborations with other organizations or businesses
- Provide higher visibility and recognition opportunities for the NV Energy Foundation
Areas of Focus
Through the NV Energy Foundation, we administer grants in support of projects that benefit four major areas:
- Art/Culture (see grant page)
- Environment/Community Enhancement (see grant page)
- Safety/Wellness (see grant page)
The NV Energy Foundation seeks education programs and initiatives that span the kindergarten-to-career spectrum and deliver innovative, effective programs, especially those that provide resources for underserved youth and young adults. Programs must demonstrate measurable results and can represent a broad range of education initiatives including arts, literacy, workforce development, and projects in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Project examples: Programs that improve arts education, reading proficiency, enhance STEM and STEAM skills, and workforce preparation.
Our Foundation does not have an established range of amounts. Many factors, including the specific program or project to be funded and the organization making the request, determine funding amounts. Based on past history, the average grant may range between $5,000 and $25,000.
