The Terry Lee Wells Foundation is dedicated to providing support to non-profit organizations that strive to improve the lives of the underprivileged in northern Nevada, with special emphasis on those which serve the needs of women and children.

The Foundation does not operate any programs but makes grants to private, non-profit organizations and public agencies to carry out projects that address the medical, educational, and quality-of-life issues faced by the underserved population of northern Nevada. The Foundation is especially interested in helping rural areas become more self-sufficient and enable them to offer a wider range of services to residents in these small communities. Grants may be awarded to organizations located in any county in Nevada except Clark County.

Since 2002, the Terry Lee Wells Foundation has awarded $
11,671,095 in grants to organizations in northern Nevada whose programs support the mission of the Foundation. We are working very hard to fulfill our motto of “Reaching Out, Touching Hearts, Changing Lives.”

November 2017 Update

The Terry Lee Wells Foundation is in the process of dissolution, and we expect that to be completed by June 2018. We would like to thank all the worthy organizations we have funded over the years for making northern Nevada a better place for those who may be struggling and for providing opportunities to improve the quality of life of the underprivileged, especially women and children. We are sad that we must sunset the Foundation, but we are proud to have fulfilled Terry Lee's dreams of "Reaching Out, Touching Hearts, Changing Lives".

We will no longer accept grant applications. Between now and May 2018 the Trustees will determine which organizations will receive our final grant funding.
