Dear Women of Achievement Sponsor,
Like you, we have been closely monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. And as we’ve been watching this unfold, we’ve been constantly asking ourselves – how can we best serve our community?
Following the guidance of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of Nevada, and to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, board members and the community at large, we have decided to cancel the May 21 Women of Achievement event.
This decision was not made lightly and we are saddened to not be able to share what is always an inspiring day with you; one that celebrates the determination, passion and dedication of women in our community and the businesses that support them.
Since 1982, Nevada Women’s Fund has made a huge impact on women’s lives, raising and awarding $7.9 million in local funding to support education scholarships to individual women; and funding grants to local non-profit organizations for needed family services. Normally, this annual event would raise the funds to sustain our mission of empowering achievement in women and families with 100% of the funds raised from the luncheon staying in Northern Nevada.
