Each year hundreds of families and school children benefit by visiting the City of Las Vegas Museum and Rough Riders Memorial Collection and participating in its special programs on history and culture of the region.
You can assure that the programs continue and you can help create an even better Museum by making a donation to the Friends of the Museum.
About the Friends
The Friends is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the support of the City of Las Vegas Museum and Rough Riders Memorial Collection.
We foresee a City of Las Vegas Museum with increased financial resources and support, expanded public partnerships, and broader community and regional participation. Our support will assist the City of Las Vegas Museum in becoming a premier regional institution that increases our understanding of the “link between the past, present, and future.”
We support the Museum’s obligation to the collection entrusted to it as patrimony by members of the community. We deliberate and generate ideas for securing both human and financial resources for the care of the collection, for scholarly research, and for education exhibits and public programs.
Trust: We strive to earn and maintain the confidence of our community and donors through responsible accounting and reporting of all our financial activities and ensure that 100% of all donations benefit the Museum.
Leadership: We are formally recognized as a 501(c)(3) public organization with a Board of Directors, and Constitution and By-Laws; we seek innovative ideas and resources for the betterment of the Museum.
Integrity: We operate honestly and openly in all our actions in our service to the Museum, the City Government, the Community, and the Friends’ membership.
Inclusiveness: We provide equal opportunities in all of our actions, regardless of biological affinity, color, national origin or ancestry, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or physical or mental disability.
Entrepreneurship: We solicit human and financial support from both public and private enterprise.
Collaboration: We actively reach out to form public-private alliances in order to coordinate Community activities and better serve the Museum.
