Campagni Auto Group Community Challenge to help local WNC Students Succeed!

The Campagni Auto Group is funding a series of new scholarships for local students who attend Western Nevada College, and it’s encouraging other businesses to do the same.

Dick Campagni, owner of the Campagni Automotive Group, gave the Western Nevada College Scholarship Fund a check for $11,000. The scholarship fund will help 18 students meet their financial needs as they work toward a degree from WNC. Ten scholarships will be awarded to students from Carson, Dayton, Douglas, Fallon and Silver Stage high schools to pursue degrees or certifications in automotive mechanics. Eight other scholarships will help students attain associate degrees in the areas of their choice.

At the Northern Nevada Development Authority meeting on Wednesday, the Campagni Auto Group spoke to NNDA members, challenging local businesses to support area students with scholarships. “It’s my hope that this donation inspires other businesses to support area students. As a business community, we need to work together to develop our local workforce,” said General Manager Dana Whaley.

Prior to presenting the donation to WNC President Chet Burton, Campagni spoke to NNDA members about his background in teaching and his affinity for education.“Carson City Toyota, Capital Ford and Campagni Auto Group as a whole are deeply invested in this community,” said Burton. “They’ve been consistently supportive of Western Nevada College. We’re excited about growing our partnership.”

Campagni Auto Group has been a long-time supporter of Western Nevada College. In addition to funding scholarships, the dealership is also a sponsor of the WNC Soccer Club and the annual WNC Golf Classic. Campagni’s Community Challenge can be found on the WNC website

“Western Nevada College students’ needs run deep,” said Niki Gladys, executive director of WNC Foundation. “Mr. Campagni’s scholarships are incredibly generous. It’s important that our business community join together to support our students as they work to better themselves.”

To accept the Campagni Challenge or learn more about contributing to academic success through the creation of a scholarship, call Gladys at 775-445- 3239.

It’s these feel good programs that Dick Campagni’s Carson City Toyota Scion enjoys giving back to. 

Boys & Girls Club of Western Nevada

Dick Campagni presented a check for $4,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada, which provided Club-branded warm long-sleeve shirts and beanies to Club members at both the Carson City and Carson Valley locations.

“The kids are so proud to wear their Club gear,” Katie Leao, chief professional officer at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada, said. “Dick Campagni’s Carson City Toyota and Scion and the Campagni Auto Group are our best community partner. They always are there for our kids.”


Campagni, a long-time donor to the Club, is currently offering a dollar to dollar match up to $10,000 in the Campagni Toyota and Scion Community Challenge. The program, independent of the $4,000 donation for the apparel, has raised nearly another $2,000 since it began on Feb. 1. Donors have until April 1 to have their donations matched by Campagni.

“We feel great about giving back to Carson City,” Campagni said. “Carson City’s been good to us. It’s not just a place in our hearts; it’s a relationship we feel with the community. We believe in helping kids, and the Boys & Girls Club is a great way to do that.”


The Club is raising funds through the Community Challenge to support its new Teen Center, which opens in June. Leao said the Boys & Girls Club has a tremendous impact on area youth.

Community Challenge!!

Make a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada between Febuary 1, 2015 and April 30, 2015 and Carson City Toyota Scion will match donations up to $10,000! 

Mr. Dick Campagni former Board Member and longtime supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada, is challenging the community to donate to the Club to support the 3,000 children served each year in Carson City and Carson Valley. Donations made between February 1, 2015 and April 30, 2015 will be matched up to $10,000. According to Dana Whaley, General Manager of Carson City Toyota Scion, “Mr. Campagni was instrumental in starting the Club here in Carson City and has long been a supporter of the Club for over 20 years. We want to help raise awareness and the funds necessary to help provide vital, out of school care, for our kids in our communities”.


Laurie Gorris, CPO for the Club, states, “without the support of community businesses and individuals, we would not be able to keep our fees low for the children that need our services the most. For $30 per year, we can give a child a ride from school, homework help, and a free snack during school times; most importantly, they are safe here. We truly appreciate Mr. Campagni’s commitment to the Club over the past twenty years!”

Carson Tahoe Cancer Center




For the seventh year in a row, Dick Campagni’s Carson City Toyota has generously donated to the Carson Tahoe Cancer Center. Even though cancer research is closest to Campagni’s heart, he also gives to numerous other charities, especially those devoted to helping kids and the elderly.


The giving creates strong ties to the community and emboldens employees. “Its fun for me because I have my own special checkbook for charity,” says General Manager Dana Whaley. “Dick and (his wife) Mary are pretty open with giving if they think it’s a good cause.”

Northern Nevada Development Authority's Pioneer's Mark Twain Award!

Mr. Campagni, Dana Whaley and Carson City Toyota Scion were nominated for and WON the Northern Nevada Development Authority’s Pioneer’s Mark Twain Award last night at the Carson Nugget.  This is a very prestigious award for their dedication and commitment to an incredible marketing campaign that assisted the needs of many non-profits. The 5 part award as pictured is a Commendation from United States Senator Harry Reid, A Commendation from United States Senator Dean Heller, A Commendation from the United State House of Representatives Congressman Mark Amodei, A Commendation from Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and an award plaque in the shape of Nevada from the NNDA.


What specifically was marketed and what was the focus of the marketing campaign?: 

Throughout this year(and frankly every year for 30 plus) Mr. Campagni and Mr. Whaley get together and plan a marketing campaign around all of the non-profit organizations that they feel are deserving of their financial support. They meet for over a week to dedicate the expenses necessary to making the non-profit programs and their special needs go off without a hitch. They determine the dates and needs of the programs the non-profits are requesting and they find away to fill the wish lists from these organizations. They use dealership funds, they use their personal funds and often they invite their employees so they can get involved as well. Its not a quick decision, its a year long commitment to giving back in this community.


Were there any particular marketing tactics used?: 

The tactics differ depending upon which organization they are helping. For some they pony up the cash to offer a car donation. They have done this for Little league, Boys and Girls club, Cancer Center, Northern Nevada Blood Center, University of Nevada Reno and to other local charities as well. For others it may be a cash donation like we did for RSVP so the community could have an awesome fireworks show and bring their families for a lower cost. For some its a cash donation and a marketing challange using all of their pull in the radio, tv and newspaper to challenge other businesses to match their donation. Sometimes the decision is to host an event for the organization at our dealerships. Maybe its food gathering for FISH, or toy gathering for Toys for Tots or helping sell ducks for the Humane Society. Regardless, they rarely say no and when they decide to participate, it is usually in the biggest way possible.


What positive impact has this had on people and/or community?: 


Oh let me count the ways. If you ask the Cancer Center how much the vehicle and cash donations have helped the patients and cancer center over the years and again this year, they will tell you it is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. If you ask FISH, Little League, the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada, the Ron Wood Center, Northen Nevada Blood Center,Food for Thought, Austin's House, Advocates to End Domestic Violence, Humane Society, Nevada Diabetes Association and of course the University of Nevada Reno they will all tell you the same thing. They could never have reached their goals or the level of support without the help from Dick Campagni and Dana Whaley and Carson City Toyota Scion.
