Northern Nevada Childrens Cancer Foundation
Tungsten Engineering Contractors adopts a family from NNCCF for Christmas each year and deliveres everything and more on their lists. We truly believe in helping those who need it the most.
The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation (NNCCF) has provided help, hope, and courage to local families affected by childhood cancer since 2000. The foundation was named in 2009 after two foundations in Reno joined forces and legally merged. Angel Kiss was founded in 2000, in memory of a five-year-old boy named Jarryd who passed away from leukemia, and the Keaton Raphael Memorial, Reno office, was founded in 2004 in memory of a five-year-old boy named Keaton who passed away from neuroblastoma. Despite their losses, these two families gave hope to others battling childhood cancer.
NNCCF continues to provide hope for local children and their families through financial and emotional assistance. There are only a few requirements for families to receive assistance from NNCCF – the child is under the age of 26, has a confirmed cancer diagnosis, and is a resident of northern Nevada. All programs and services are provided at no cost to the families, and there is not an income requirement to receive services.
Bishop Manogue Catholic Highschool
Over 30% of the student body at Bishop Manogue High School receives a need-based or merit-based scholarship to attend one of the best highschools in Nevada. Bishop Manogue Catholic High School operating costs are solely dependent upon student tuition and we at Tungsten Engineering Contractors donate to help offset those costs. It is important that every child has access to a quality education regardless of socio-ecconomic background.
California High School Rodeo Association – District 3
For over 40 years, California High School Rodeo, District 3, has provided a place for youth rodeo to flourish and grow. Generations of cowboys and cowgirls come up the ranks and have seen the benefits of CHSRA. The vision and goal have always been teaching leadership, promoting education and encouraging family values.
Although not recognized by high school athletics, the NHSRA District 3, offers a rodeo program that sets high school rodeo apart from other varsity sports: Athletes compete on a scale comparable to collegiate and professional rodeo competitors. The CHSRA District 3 is an independent student athletic association — governing itself without the supervision of school administrations or assistance from tax dollars. Members are fully insured, supervised and guided by adult experts. Competitors have the opportunity to acquire scholarships and grants for continuing their educational careers.
