This is NevadaGIVES fifth statewide online giving event. Nevada’s Big Give is 24 hours of online giving benefiting charities across the state and fosters charitable giving by encouraging Nevadans to give where they live.
Unlike other fundraising initiatives, Nevada’s Big Give promotes personal giving to all of the state’s participating nonprofits through its unique and highly visible online platform. In addition to encouraging continued support to Nevadan’s favorite causes and campaigns, Nevada’s Big Give introduces donors to new nonprofits and educational causes attracting first-time donations. To date, Nevada’s Big Give has raised just over $2 million for nearly 500 Nevada charities from over 15,000 unique donors.
The Mob Museum is participating again this year and your donation helps us to achieve our expanding mission, deepen our reach within the community, and ensure our future as a vibrant cultural destination.
