In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope—that together we can do extraordinary things. Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out and give back. On May 5, 2020, The Discovery is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity and giving.
As you know, The Discovery is currently closed to the public in compliance with Governor Sisolak’s order to close all non-essential businesses. As a result, The Discovery is experiencing an immediate and severe financial shortfall of $400,000. We are mitigating this loss with cuts to our already lean budget and significant reductions in staff, but the financial shortfall the closure is creating is a challenge for our young organization. In this time of urgent need, we are turning to our community to support our steadfast efforts to provide enriching, hands-on science educational opportunities.
Please make a gift of $50, $250, $1,000, or whatever amount you can to ensure our region’s growing community of lifelong learners will NEVER stop learning about science at The Discovery. Your financial support today will help fill a critical funding gap in the earned revenue streams that The Discovery needs to survive the challenges created by this unforeseen crisis.
