FUND OUR FUTURE NEVADA
Fund Our Future Nevada
HOPE is part of a coalition of community organizations determined to ensure our public schools have sufficient funds to provide all the appropriate and necessary resources students need to reach their full academic potential and graduate to be college and career ready.
Nevada ranks near the bottom in the nation for funding K-12 education and was given a D- for its education funding by the QUALITY

"All students deserve appropriate resources to reach their
full academic potential and graduate to be college and career ready."

A new education funding formula that accounts for evolving demographic changes and that appropriately funds the needs of every Nevada student.

Increased funds and new mandates that come with accountability and resources to ensure results and a Return on the Investment in our students.
