Communities In Schools Of Nevada

OUR MISSION
To surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

OUR GOALS
To break down barriers — no matter what they may be — for all students in Nevada. Whether a student needs a new pair of shoes or food for the weekend; whether they need help paying for college applications or help with homework; whether they need a pair of glasses or a bus pass to get to school, Communities In Schools of Nevada is there to provide resources to help.

FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES
Communities In Schools Nevada accepts donations year-round. Our annual gala, Today for Tomorrow, takes place on Nov. 10 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. This year’s theme, honoring Dana and Greg Lee, is “GDC: Greg and Dana’s Carnival.” It’ll be the brightest party in town; you won’t want to miss it. Tickets, tables and ad space available for purchase at cisnevada.org.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
CIS Nevada hosts a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year! From helping with events, to volunteering in schools, to speaking with one of our classes as an adult mentor, call or email us to find out how you can be involved.

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES
Any gift is always welcome. School supplies are accepted year-round, as are cash donations. CIS Nevada hosts events throughout the year all around the state. From Elko’s Nite at the Races event, to Reno’s Cappy Hour event, to Las Vegas’s Chow Down event and more, there are always opportunities to give to CIS Nevada.
