What We Do

Over the course of our tenure, we’ve honed our focus clearly on creating educational and artistic opportunities for students, teachers, and the community, while engaging in a statewide effort to reverse the trajectory of Nevada’s education system.


The Rogers Foundation is one of the largest privately funded charitable foundations in Nevada. Previously named Foundation of The Year and a 2019 Angel Award recipient.

Our Activities

We power Educate Nevada Now (ENN), a non-partisan education policy organization focused on ensuring that every Nevada child has access to a quality education, regardless of their family income or circumstances.

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.

We fund multiple full ride scholarships, including tuition and board to high school seniors or first-year college transfer students to Kentucky Wesleyan College.

We fuel education non-profit 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 support Black Mountain Institute at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

We contribute to the success of artists of every nature through The Rogers Artist Residency by providing a home at The Rogers Art Loft and workspace at The Rogers Studio Gallery.

In the winter of 2022, we will open The Beverly Theater, a fully programmed independent movie theater and entertainment venue designed to stage the uncommon cinematic, literary, and live experience.

Education is Key

We underwrite statewide educational reform efforts focused on educational equity through Educate Nevada Now.

Uplifting the Arts

We continue to support the arts with the creation of Rogers Art Loft and with the upcoming debut of Las Vegas’ only independent movie house and live performance venue, The Beverly Theater.  

Focus on Families

We uplift families by supporting programs including CORE whose mission is rooted in the belief that the most powerful way to ensure economic mobility and equity is to invest in children and their families.
