Opportunity Village

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (Las Vegas Sun) - Administrators at a well-known Las Vegas charity are celebrating the arrival of a $928,000 check from a trust established by an unnamed donor.

Opportunity Village development chief Linda Smith tells the Las Vegas Sun the donation is one of the biggest that Opportunity Village has ever received.

It wasn't entirely unexpected. But the amount had been a mystery.

Opportunity Village learned more than a year ago that it was one of seven charities named as beneficiaries of the remainder trust.

The organization provides vocational skill training and job placement for about 1,750 people with intellectual disabilities in southern Nevada.

It's largely self-funded, and has a $25 million budget.
