The Discovery Resiliency Fund

Your support is critical

Please help The Discovery survive the coronavirus (COVID-19) closure and resulting $400,000 revenue shortfall.

These are, without a doubt, uncertain times. The rapidly evolving situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), and how we attempt to make sense of it all, can be disorienting. But one thing remains certain: the importance of science education.

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 education. 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. 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.

Support The Discovery Today!

UPDATE: As of April 22, 2020, your generosity has helped The Discovery achieve the full $60,000 in matching funds offered by an anonymous donor! Your gift today will help us raise the remaining $100,000 we need to address our immediate shortfall in revenue!

We recognize that this crisis affects everyone differently, but please know that your gift in any amount will make a tremendous impact. We know that our community will need the inspiration The Discovery creates more than ever when this crisis abates.
