Endowment Campaign


“The Smith Center is the most important structure to be built in Nevada in our lifetime.” – Don Snyder, Smith Center board chairman

Generous community contributions transformed The Smith Center from a dream to a reality. The launch of our Campaign to Sustain The Smith Center seeks to ensure this dream never dies.

We are deeply grateful to the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation for creating our initial $50 million endowment. Targeting to grow this endowment to $100 million will not only ensure community members continue to access our world-class productions and inspiring arts education programs for generations to come, it will also free The Smith Center to focus our resources on expanding our community outreach and serving as an incubator for new artistic endeavors.

Please reach out to Daniel Neel, VP of Development at 702.749.2354 or via email at DNeel@thesmithcenter.com to explore how you can play a role in keeping the Heart of the Arts beating in Southern Nevada.
