Give the Gift of Hope

Join us to support CSN student success through the Gift of Hope campaign. Two initiatives to help students through the holidays – the CSN Student Emergency Fund and Angel Holiday Fund. We invite you to make a gift and engage your family, friends and colleagues as a Gift of Hope Ambassador.

What We Do

Our mission is to graduate students debt-free through philanthropy.


Scholarships for CSN students support their commitment to education and reduce or eliminate their education debt – moving them closer to debt-free education.

Spirit of CSN Awards

The Spirit of CSN Awards recognize excellence in educational opportunities and programs in and out of the classroom. Annual grants up to $10,000 are awarded based on proposals reviewed by a committee representing CSN faculty, staff and students. 

CSN Alumni

Every year, more than 3,600 students graduate from CSN. We are so proud of their accomplishments. One of every 82 people in Southern Nevada are a part of the CSN family. The CSN Alumni Network provides connections between graduates, CSN and our community. 

Giving Tuesday

You can help CSN students by making a gift to the CSN Student Emergency Fund and the Angel Holiday Fund. 

A Special Thank You to

Our Corporate Partners
