Salute to women of achievement

Salute to Women of Achievement

Thursday May 27, 2021


We are pleased to announce that Nevada Women’s Fund will hold the Salute to Women of Achievement event in 2021! 

 Although this year Salute to Women of Achievement will be organized differently due to Covid, we remain very proud to move forward with recognizing and celebrating the determination, passion and dedication of women in our Northern Nevada community, and the businesses and employers that support them. 

Since 1982, Nevada Women’s Fund has made a huge impact on women’s lives, raising and awarding over $8 million in local funding to support education scholarships to individual women; and funding grants to local non-profit organizations for needed family services. This annual event raises funds to sustain our mission of empowering achievement in women and families with 100% of the funds raised from the luncheon staying in northern Nevada.

The Nevada Women’s Fund invites you to recognize an outstanding woman in your organization, field of work or community at the Salute to Women of Achievement on May 27, 2021.


About the Salute to Women of Achievement:  Local corporations and organizations recognize individual women for their community service, career and personal achievements. Considered Reno’s largest business luncheon, usually over 1,400 attended annually to honor the deserving woman in our community while supporting the Nevada Women’s Fund’s mission of empowering achievement in local women and their families.  We hope to gather together in 2022 for the luncheon after the Covid crisis.


Salute champions in your company and the community:   This event is an excellent opportunity to honor women inside and outside your organization. Honor a key employee in your company or maybe consider recognizing a woman in the community. Identify teachers, caregivers, faith workers, non-profit professionals or volunteers – the choice is yours.


How to Participate:  Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, we are unable to gather for the in-person lunch. However, we intend to keep the celebration on track!

Your Honorees will still gather safely and within existing Covid guidelines for a morning breakfast and workshop to meet and network. After the breakfast celebration, we encourage each business or organization with an Honoree to hold a special internal celebration to the extent possible. During the company lunch celebration, Nevada Women’s Fund will stream a lunch program to include a student and keynote speaker. This may mean bringing a special lunch into your office, taking the Honoree out to a special lunch or perhaps gathering staff and friends together on ZOOM to celebrate your Honoree. The NWF will program can be seen on any digital device be it a phone, tablet, computer or conference room large screen.

Your sponsorship will include a package of digital assets to personalize your Honoree. The branding package consists of the overall Women of Achievement branding images and fonts for the event that can be modified to include your company logo and the honoree’s picture so you can use it to share internally and externally within your company. Examples would be: use for your social media when announcing your honoree; or newsletter, if you have one; or make banners or signs that read “a Woman of Achievement works here” (and maybe put in her office or share on her social media page). The branding package allows you and your office to be as creative as you like with the base files.

Submit the attached Sponsorship Agreement not later than March 31, 2021. Upon receiving the Agreement, Nevada Women’s Fund will respond with a request for additional company and honoree information. Honorees and sponsoring businesses will be featured on NWF social media and website during the month of May.
