Event Date: Tuesday August 17th 2021
Event Time: 4pm - 7pm
Event Location: Emerald at Queensridge (891 S Rampart Blvd Las Vegas NV 89145)

Event Purpose:

Tuesday August 17th 2021 is NATIONAL NONPROFIT AWARENESS DAY. This is a day which has been set aside in order to recognize the tremendous work and contributions made by nonprofits all over the world.  According to National Day Calendar, this was the day the Tariff Act of 1894 was signed into law. The Tariff Act  “imposed the first federal income tax on corporations, which included exemptions for nonprofit corporations and charitable institutions.” Today, National Nonprofit Day is celebrated to commemorate the day the law was passed, and to “educate, enlighten and empower others to make a difference, while acknowledging those that are in the trenches, impacting lives every day.”

Event Description:

We want to invite the community to come out and help us recognize and raise awareness for the many local nonprofit organizations in Southern Nevada that have a positive effect on the community in which we live. This event is designed to give nonprofits (large and small) an opportunity to come together in one place, at the same time, and connect with the public while at the same time celebrating their contributions to the community.

This is a FREE EVENT FOR EVERYONE but you must pre-register. There will be FREE entertainment for the entire family. FREE giveaways and surprises throughout the day donated by our sponsors. The event will also have music, fun games & activities for the kids.

We want to connect nonprofit organizations in Southern Nevada with local businesses, volunteers, and potential sponsors and donors. We are also inviting the community to come on out for a fun time and meet the local nonprofit organizations in our great city and learn more about what they do and the services they provide.

● Some of the entertainment at the event will be provided by local nonprofits such as Culture Shock of Las Vegas, which utilizes dance to cultivate education, entertainment, and empowerment to inspire positive change for people in the community, such as underprivileged youth in Southern Nevada

● Most people have certainly heard about or recognize the larger nonprofits however many times it’s the smaller nonprofits that go unnoticed by people in the community.  We want this event to represent not just the larger nonprofits but also the smaller ones which may not get a lot of recognition but still play an important role in the community

● The pandemic and the current economic crisis has affected individuals all over the world and right here in Southern Nevada in a significant way. People are still struggling to make ends meet and the work of many nonprofits are needed now more than ever. Community engagement has always been important for helping nonprofit organizations establish and build strong relationships with members of the community and this event will help our local nonprofits do just that.
