About Us

The Ramos Foundation was established in 2006; Bert Ramos along with his sister Karen Benten, created an organization dedicated to the education and well-being of all Nevadan life. Through each of their own personal and professional experiences, Bert and Karen saw the various needs of our community in which many of our Nevada citizens were being missed and under-served. Together with other small local non-profits and professional establishments, The Ramos Foundation, created programs focused on bringing education, health, employment, training, and support to those who need it most. In the summer of 2016, a coalition of educators, health professionals, and community leaders came together to become, “The Ramos Foundation”, in order to discuss, advocate, and collaborate on new community projects and fundraisers to help our Nevada citizens and communities.
