About the Reno Rodeo Foundation
The Reno Rodeo Foundation was incorporated in 1986 to serve as the charitable arm of the Reno Rodeo, Northern Nevada’s longest-running and largest annual professional sports event. In addition to the annual Denim Drive, the organization offers scholarships annually to Northern Nevada eligible high-school students. The foundation also provides local service organizations with grants to support their programs, chooses a child with a critical illness or physical/mental impairments to receive a special “rodeo wish,” and serves as the anchor for large capital projects to improve the lives of children in our community.
