The Community Foundation of Western Nevada's mission is "Connecting people who care with causes that matter." One current focus of the foundation is coordinating area resources for youth in need. 

Chris Askin, the foundation's president and CEO, discussed its services, work and community projects with David Stipech on KUNR'sBeyond the Headlines (air date: 10/10/14).

In addition providing area donors with a way to give to their designated charitable organizations in a timeframe and manner they desire, the foundation is working to find solutions to community needs. One current focus of the foundation is coordinating area resources for youth in need -- with hundreds of young people in our community on the streets, in need of help or seeking mentors.
