Kit, local entrepreneur with a passion to help kids, joined our Board of Directors in 2019.
Kit Carson is a fifth generation Carson, related to the pioneer and frontiersman who blazed the trail west to Carson City with John C. Fremont (“If you follow the old Kit Carson trail . . . .”). Growing up on a large 80-acre ranch, surrounded by pigs and cattle, Kit comes from humble beginnings driven by hard work and determination.
He has followed in his family’s footsteps by becoming an entrepreneur and establishing The Carson Group, LLC, a real estate investment group. Prior to starting his company, Kit had his hand in the political world – from policy work as a lobbyist to campaign management.
During his free time, you can find Kit at the golf course, a cigar in hand or spending time with his beautiful wife and their crazy Husky and Jack Russell.
“Being a part of the For Kids Foundation means the world to me. The ability to directly impact a young person’s life in Northern Nevada when all systems fail, is something I take near to my heart. I look forward to the future of this organization and being a part of real CHANGE in our community.”
Kit and his wife relocated to Southern Nevada and he stepped down from his position on our Board on December 31, 2020. We thank him for his wit, generosity, and commitment to improving the lives of Northern Nevada children. We wish the Carson’s all the best!
