At Greater Nevada we're dedicated to supporting and improving our communities and helping people Live Greater
. We’ve partnered with Special Olympics of Northern Nevada
and the University of Nevada Wolf Pack Marching Band
to provide ongoing assistance through sponsorships
, fundraising and employee volunteerism.
Freezin’ for a Reason
One of the leading fundraising efforts we support each year is the Special Olympics’ Polar Plunge. Plunge events take place statewide including Elko, Incline Village, Las Vegas, and Zephyr Cove. Greater Nevada is proud to be named the top corporate fundraiser for the 2015 Polar Plunge in Zephyr Cove, Nevada, bringing in more than $19,000.

Raising Funds for the Nevada Wolf Pack Marching Band
Greater Nevada is also focused on keeping the UNR “Pride of the Sierra” band jammin'! It takes a lot of resources to sustain the nearly 200-member group, so Greater Nevada employees work to raise funds that help cover travel costs, new instruments and uniforms, and fund band member scholarships.
The partnership is an essential component to fulfilling the marching band's mission of providing positive, educational and musical experiences for students, while generating high levels of excitement and spirit at every event they attend.
Supporting Our Local Communities
In addition, 100% of our employees volunteer through our Community Service Program with more than 250 local non-profit and charitable organizations. Enthusiastic about making a difference in the communities in which they live and work, employees collectively contribute thousands of volunteer hours each year.
We raise funds for local high school teams and groups, and roll up our sleeves with Truckee Meadows Habitat for Humanity to build houses for those in need. Our employees contribute their time and talent to organizations that provide a wide range of family, educational, social, and health and wellness services and support such as the Salvation Army, the Boys & Girls Club, the Discovery Museum, Friends in Service Helping (FISH), the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, United Blood Services, the American Cancer Society, the Nevada Humane Society, and many more.
