Volunteer Spotlight | Colin Janison

At United Way of Southern Nevada, we believe in recognizing and celebrating individuals who go above and beyond in their dedication to serving others. This month, we are thrilled to shine the spotlight on our Volunteer of the Month, Colin Janison. Join us as we delve deeper into his inspiring journey and learn more about the incredible work he has accomplished. 

Inspired by a Legacy of Giving: Growing up, Colin witnessed the selflessness and community-oriented spirit of his parents, who consistently volunteered their time and actively contributed to the betterment of Las Vegas. His mother’s involvement in the nonprofit sector left a lasting impression on Colin, igniting a deep desire within him to follow in their footsteps and make a difference through volunteering. 

A Driving Force in the Young Leaders Society (YLS): Colin’s dedication to philanthropy led him to become an integral part of UWSN’s Young Leaders Society (YLS). Since joining YLS, Colin has witnessed the power of a united group of like-minded young professionals who prioritize giving back to the community. He has been an active participant, contributing his time, skills, and passion to various initiatives and projects that uplift and support our Southern Nevada community.  

An Honored Role within YLS: Colin’s remarkable commitment and invaluable contributions have earned him a special place within YLS. Serving on the board, he works alongside other outstanding individuals under the guidance of Jason Williams and Chad Kaercher. Together, they have revived and reinvigorated the program, breathing new life into its mission and establishing a strong network of young professionals dedicated to creating positive change. 

Going Beyond YLS: Colin’s dedication to service extends far beyond his involvement with YLS. Professionally, he works for Endowment Partners, an investment management firm exclusively dedicated to supporting nonprofit organizations. Through this role, he has had the privilege of collaborating with numerous local nonprofits, providing them with the support they need to thrive.
