Message from CEO Banner

Fellow Members of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce,

I hope you enjoyed a festive and safe 4th of July weekend. One big event of note last week was the ground-breaking of the new Google data center, a $600 million investment spanning 64 acres in Henderson on West Warm Springs just east of Boulder Highway. This is a tremendous economic development win for our community, and it was a joint effort between the City of Henderson, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, NVEnergy and others. It will hopefully prove to be the catalyst for further technology development in Henderson. The full story from the Las Vegas Sun is here.

As the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, we are very appreciative when a company comes to town with civic focus and commitment, in addition to job creation. Google is hitting the mark perfectly. The HCC has over seventy 501c3 members, and we want to take a moment to highlight the grant opportunity that Google has thoughtfully presented to you. With their arrival, Google has launched a $1 million Google.org Impact Challenge, which invites non-profits across the state to apply and compete for grant funding and Google supported training and tools. We want to be sure our Henderson community is aware of this initiative. You can review the grant parameters and application process here.

We hope that some of our local non-profits take advantage of this fund and submit an application – please note the deadlines within the guidelines. Thank you to Google for investing in our local community. Have a profitable week and thanks for your membership!
