Donations made through September 30th will be matched!

To help us sustain our leadership in the community as we carefully reopen our doors, we have created The CommUNITY Challenge Fund which has been seeded by a challenge grant from a generous anonymous donor with a gift of $200,000. Our goal is to match those funds with an additional $200,000 before September 30. We hope you will consider helping us meet the challenge and fill the gap in our earned revenue streams by making a gift of $50, $250, $1,000 or more to ensure that we can keep supporting our community’s children—especially those most in need.

Furthermore, as part of the new U.S. Coronavirus Relief Package, a new universal charitable giving incentive is being offered which will allow all individuals to deduct contributions from their tax returns up to $300 made now through December 31, 2020. Additionally, caps on annual contributions have been eliminated for itemizing tax payers. Click here for more information and to make a tax-deductible gift to DISCOVERY Children’s Museum now. Thank you for your support!

From their FIRST steps...

To their FIRST inventions...

We need your help putting OUR KIDS FIRST.

DISCOVERY Children’s Museum is the only place in Southern Nevada putting children’s needs for play, exploration, inspiration, belonging, and unique learning experiences above all else. But as a non-profit organization, we can’t do it alone. We need your help!

Your Donation Makes a Difference

From our state-of-the-art DISCOVERY Lab filled with 3-D printing and laser-cutting machines to our 70-foot Summit packed with 12 levels of interactive exhibits…

Our eco-friendly mini city where kids can learn to earn a paycheck to our magical world of fantasy where Las Vegas’ next generation of entertainers is born…

We are only able to do it thanks to the generous support of donors like you.

How Your Support Could Change the Trajectory of a Child's Life

It doesn’t take much. Your $5 donation helps pay for supplies in one of our dozens of exhibits, including our nationally-recognized makerspace. We need things like gloves, chalk, paper, and even hard hats to keep our spaces stocked properly for the kids. It’s within these exhibits children are inspired to become engineers and designers, entrepreneurs and entertainers.

If art has your heart, consider donating $25 — the admission price for one child in need to attend Art Camp with our Artist in Residence. You could play a part in helping shape the next Picasso! 

$50 covers a full tank of gas for the DISCOVERY On Wheels van. Our Discovery On Wheels program brings hands-on health science programs directly to elementary school classrooms. Instruction follows specific lessons emphasizing national, state, and local curriculum standards and is led by our team of professional museum educators.

$100 helps fund lab coats and goggles for galleries like Patents Pending and exhibits like our children’s hospital. These spaces are where the city’s youngest inventors come to test their latest experiments and the next generation of doctors is born!

Other Ways You Can Help

Donate MEMBERSHIP to a Family in Need

With an $85 donation, you can provide a year’s-worth of DISCOVERIES to a family of two who might not otherwise be able to experience the museum even once. $145 pays for membership for a family of four. Talk about an opportunity to change the trajectory of a child’s life!

Gifts of Any Size Make a Big Impact

Every dollar you donate goes directly towards shaping the minds and quenching the curiosities of local and visiting children who come to DISCOVERY Children’s Museum. Our goal is to provide as many children as possible access to quality STEAM education that ignites a lifelong love of learning.

Our Mission
