The Smith Center is funded by a public-private partnership. The city of Las Vegas has provided the land, infrastructure and parking for the facility. In addition, the city, Clark County and state legislature collaborated on a car rental fee that resulted in a bond of just over $100 million.

The private funding campaign was launched by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation with a landmark gift of $50 million in 2005, in honor of their chairman, Fred W. Smith, and his wife, Mary. Since then, the Reynolds Foundation has continued their generosity with an additional $100 million grant. This gift is the largest philanthropic donation in state history and, combined with their initial contribution, is the second largest donation to the performing arts in the United States.
