Four Southern Nevada nonprofit organizations providing legal services to those in need will share a $9,675 donation made by Bank of Nevada. The funds will allow the agencies to continue providing legal services within the community at no cost, or at a greatly reduced fee.

The benefiting organizations include Nevada Foundation for Consumer Education, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, Southern Nevada Senior Law Program, and Nevada Legal Services. Many of the clients served by these organizations would otherwise be unable to afford legal services on their own.
The donation was presented by Bank of Nevada President, Rachelle Crupi, during a continuing legal education (CLE) event on February 23, 2017, which was sponsored by Bank of Nevada.
“These four organizations provide an essential service for many in our community who are in need of legal assistance, but would otherwise be unable to afford it,” said Rachelle Crupi, President, Bank of Nevada. “We are pleased to help support the efforts of these outstanding nonprofit organizations.”
