The Rogers Foundation seeks to transform lives through art and education.
The Rogers Foundation was created to advance Jim Rogers’ passion for education. We launched our inaugural gift in 2015 with the promise to invest in a college education for every student in Mrs. Vuich’s third-grade class at Reynaldo Martinez Elementary School. That pledge comes to fruition in the next few years. Over the course of our tenure, we’ve added a set of activities that focuses clearly on creating educational and artistic opportunities for Clark County students and teachers, while engaging in a statewide effort to reverse the trajectory of Nevada’s education system. We continue to champion the talent and reward the hard work of our youth and the dedicated teachers who give their all.
The Rogers Foundation strives to transform lives by supporting students, institutions, programs, initiatives, and educators.
We offer scholarships ranging from $20,000 to $100,000 to Clark County public high school students to attend the college or university of their choice or Kentucky Wesleyan College.
We underwrite statewide educational reform efforts focused on educational equity through Educate Nevada Now.
We power CORE, the two-generation program that serves under-resourced students and their families from middle school to graduation and beyond to live choice-filled lives.
Along with The Smith Center, we present the Heart of Education Awards, a ceremony to honor the work of Clark County K-12 public school teachers.
We contributed to the success of artists of every nature through The Rogers Artists Residency by providing a home at The Art Loft and work space at The Rogers Studio Gallery.
