Individual Giving

You know that African proverb, “It takes a village…”? Well, it’s true! And our village is made up of hundreds of generous donors throughout Southern Nevada and beyond. They understand that as a non-profit, the only way DISCOVERY Children’s Museum is able to provide the diverse and exceptional programming it does is with the help of people like you.

There are so many ways you can give to DISCOVERY. We have received gifts of $5, which help keep our exhibits stocked with supplies, all the way up to gifts of $1,000,000, which fund our all-inclusive and access programs like Museums for All.

Regardless of how much you may be able and willing to give, one thing is for certain: We will make sure every single penny goes toward putting Our Kids FIRST.

Did you know that you can donate gifts of stock to the Museum? This is an easy and tax-effective way to support the Museum. By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving 20 percent more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation!

You can donate appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, which is an easy way for you to make a gift to the Museum. The benefits of donating in this tax-effective way include:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax on the sale of your appreciated stock
  • Receive a charitable tax deduction
  • Help us support our mission

You can make these gifts in two easy ways:

Electronic Transfer: the Museum is happy to provide donors with the instructions on how to transfer stocks or bonds from your brokerage or investment account to DISCOVERY Children’s Museum. Please contact Shirley Cohen-Matthew with any questions at office 702.462-6149 or by email at scohen-matthew@discoverykidslv.org

Certified Mail: If you hold securities in certificate form, you will need to mail two envelopes separately to complete your gift. In the first envelope, place the unsigned stock certificate(s). In the other envelope, include a signed stock power for each certificate. You may obtain this power from your broker or bank. Please remember to send this Certified Mail.

Please Note: There are special rules for valuing a gift of stock. The value of a charitable gift of stock is determined by taking the mean between the high and low stock price on the date of the gift. Mutual fund shares are valued using the closing price for the fund on the date of the gift.
