IN THE COMMUNITY
ICC’s philanthropic efforts promote positive change and progress for Nevadans, giving them the opportunity to improve the quality of life for themselves, their families, and those around them.
In the words of our founder Randy Garcia, “We don’t want to just write checks or sit on boards. We want to make sure there’s something tangible that creates systemic and positive improvement in people’s lives. That’s the best gift.”
