Nevada’s Big Give – Help Us Raise Money for Field Trips & More
This is the first year that Friends of NSMLV have participated in Nevada’s Big Give, and we are excited about their fundraising goals!
Donating During Nevada’s Big Give Will Help Fund:
- The Friends of NSMLV have a School Bus program. They pay for buses to bring Clark County fourth graders to the museum on field trips. their goal is to pay for 20 trips by the end of 2017. This means about 1280 kids from under-served Clark County schools will visit the museum and participate in activities with the Education Curator.
- The butterfly and moth collections at NSMLV are remarkable and irreplaceable sources of information about Nevada insects and the world they inhabit. The friends are working with NSMLV to photograph and catalog 20,000 insects in the museum’s collection. Computer equipment is needed to store information about the bugs, and upload it to the web for public access. The Friends’ goal is to buy one refurbished laptop, and two refurbished desktop computers.
Nevada’s Big Give is March 23rd, but you can donate any time you want before then!
