HOPE, community coalition launch Fund Our Future Nevada campaign
Updated: Feb 21, 2018
Last week, HOPE for Nevada, in partnership with Educate Nevada Now, along with parents, educators, students and education advocates launched the statewide Fund Our Future Nevada campaign and coalition at Tomiyasu Elementary School to make the case for appropriate funds for Nevada K-12 schools.
The group formed out of a combined interest in educating the community about the need for increased funds for schools and awareness of tax laws made in the name of education that have not provided education increases as advertised.
You can also sign our pledge in support of increased K-12 funds.
This kick-off was just the beginning as we are adding more partners who support this initiative and want to see our students have the resources they need to increase their academic achievement.
If you’re interested in partnering with us or would like to have us speak with your group or organization to discuss K-12 funding, please reach out to us. You can watch our Facebook Live video of the campaign launch here. Or, click below to read coverage on our announcement.

We look forward to working with our community partners and working to advocate on behalf of our students and educators. Please follow us on social media and look for the #FundOurFutureNV #FullyFundedFirst and #FOFNV to join the conversation.
The time is now to Fund Our Future Nevada!
