Douglas County Community Services Foundation President and Chairwoman Renea Louie was recognized by Douglas County commissioners on Thursday as the first inductee in the foundation’s Million Dollar Club.

The nonprofit acts as a liaison between the government of Douglas County and private donors to route donations to the county.

“Renea Louie is highly respected and offers leadership, business acumen, and skills to impassion donors and supporters, both businesses and individuals, to support the foundation and its purpose,” Community Services Director Scott Morgan said. “She has raised over $1.8 million and growing, for the foundation. Her fundraising has supported the community and senior Centers in Gardnerville, Stateline, Topaz Ranch Estates and both recreation and youth programs.”

Louie served for 15 years on the original community and senior center feasibility committee, the design committee, the construction committee, the capital fundraising committee.

“She has secured substantial contributions and funding commitments for the foundation to furnish and equip the needs of the new facility before construction,” county officials said. “She was also key and instrumental in raising funds for the foundation to make improvements and buy equipment for the Kahle Community Center and Gymnasium in Stateline and funded the kitchen remodel at the Topaz Ranch Estates Center in South Douglas County.”

 Louie raised $512,000 for The Incredible Kids program which provides youth membership scholarships at both the Douglas County Community and Senior Center and Kahle Community Center & Gymnasium.

She invited residents to consider donating to the foundation, every dollar.

“The fabric of our community is strengthened by the service of the dedicated staff, volunteers, and donors,” she said. “When we stand side-by-side to help others, success happens. Each day, the Foundation board members and others, that step up to support the community to help with needs both great and small are who we wish to thank.”
