At NV Energy the power of good is always on and is spreading throughout Nevada. After 12 days of voting and nearly 100,000 votes cast, NV Energy announced that the winners of the first-ever Power of Good Giveaway are Fernley High School Music Boosters, a northern Nevada nonprofit, and Positively Arts Foundation, Inc., a southern Nevada nonprofit. Each organization will receive $10,000 from the NV Energy Foundation.

145 diverse Nevada youth nonprofits voluntarily participated in the first giveaway. These nonprofits found creative ways to energize their supporters and donors to place a vote for them each day. The Power of Good giveaway is just one of the ways the Foundation supports hundreds of nonprofits each year. The NV Energy Foundation is not funded by its customers.

“Congratulations to Fernley High School Music Boosters and Positively Arts Foundation, Inc. for winning and thank you to all the organizations for participating in the first NV Energy Foundation Power of Good Giveaway,” said Mary Simmons, NV Energy Vice President of Business Development and Community Strategy who also serves as NV Energy Foundation Secretary. “We really wanted to do something different in our communities, and this was a unique opportunity to celebrate the good work of Nevada’s nonprofits, and direct a portion of our annual giving to the causes those in our communities care about the most. We were overwhelmed by the positive reception the contest garnered from the community.”
