NHLA is pleased to announce the launch of the newly formed Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation. The foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) formed to provide scholarships for people interested in starting or furthering their careers in the hotel industry.
The Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation is aligned with the goals and vision of the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Association. Our mission is to grant scholarships for education, certifications and training programs to eligible persons seeking to enter or advance within the hospitality industry.
A goal of the Nevada Hotel and Lodging Foundation is to provide a vehicle for tax deductible contributions to support the hotel and lodging industry related education, scholarships, and programs.
