State of Nevada Honors the Mary Kay Ash Foundation

In honor of its work to help women in the state of Nevada, the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation was honored by Gov. Jim Gibbons today with a proclamation declaring April 10 as "Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation Day" in Nevada.

The Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation (MKACF) was started in 1996 by Mary Kay Ash, the founder of cosmetics giant Mary Kay Inc. The Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation provides funding for research of leading cancers affecting women. In 2001, the MKACF expanded its mission to support efforts to both prevent violence against women and help women who have been victims of abuse.

The Foundation has actively supported the needs of women in Nevada by awarding grants to family violence shelters in Carson City, Elko, Fallon, Henderson, Incline Village, Minden and Reno. Donations to Nevada women's shelters from the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation have exceeded $182,000.
