Intrinsically tied to the Foundation’s work is the spectacular environment in which it rests. Therefore, the Brett Torino Foundation is committed to supporting the conservation and preservation of Lovell Canyon by providing an ecological sanctuary for the surrounding Toiyabe Forest animals, removing debris dumped in Lovell Canyon, and partnering with government entities for protective legislation and programs.
The Brett Torino Foundation Education Services together with Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, has developed a number of education services designed to meet the educational needs of every child diagnosed with cancer in Southern Nevada. The program provides a way for chronically-ill children to continue their education even if they are too ill to attend school.
The Brett Torino Foundation funds and executes summer camps and education programs for critically or chronically ill children, and those with special needs. Through preserving and sharing the natural environment of its home location, Lovell Canyon in the Toiyabe National Forest, the foundation offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences that bring profound joy, connection and enlightenment to those in need.
Brett Torino, a developer, entrepreneur and lifelong philanthropist created the Brett Torino Foundation more than twenty years ago after spending millions of dollars and dozens of years building his outdoor sanctuary, Torino Ranch. His desire to share nature’s majesty with those in need became a passion that developed events, programs and educational opportunities for critically ill or special needs children.
