Award based on Outstanding Online Reviews
RENO, Nev. – The Reno Rodeo Foundation has been named a “2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits.
Incorporated in 1986 as the charitable arm of the Reno Rodeo, the Reno Rodeo Foundation builds and leverages community partnership to fund scholarships and support children with extraordinary need in 14 Northern Nevada counties by strategically allocating financial resources to have the highest impact possible.
In addition to the annual Denim Drive that helps clothe neglected and abused foster children 365 days a year, the organization provides educational scholarships to eligible Northern Nevada high school graduates including supporting foster youth education, funds a Reno Rodeo Wish for a child, provides funding to purchase new books to comfort Denim Drive children who are required to attend family court proceedings, and builds community partnerships and serves as the anchor for large capital projects to improve the lives of children.
“We are honored to be named a 2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” said Clara Andriola, executive director of the Reno Rodeo Foundation. “Everyone knows 2020 has been a challenging year, but the need to keep children safe never stops. We are so thankful for the continued support of our generous community and to our partners, volunteers and board of directors who helped us implement a new process to continue to safely serve the Denim Drive kids.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that the Reno Rodeo Foundation received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. One reviewer wrote, “We feel incredibly thankful and blessed to have received the support and help of the Reno Rodeo Foundation. They are truly an amazing organization that goes out of their way to help kids and families in their community. They are positive, kind, generous, and caring. I know of no other community organization that we have had experience with that shows such an outpouring of love to so many.”
