On November 4, 2017, the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation officially opened the "Britney Spears Campus" in Las Vegas. The facility came to reality thanks to the $1 million that Britney donated through the sale of tickets from her Britney: Piece of Me residency. Clark County Commission Steve Sisolak equated Spears’ $1 million donation as well. “I’m just really excited to be standing here for our new NCCF campus,” said Britney during the ceremony. “We started fundraising in 2014 and we’ve raised $1 million to build this amazing facility to support the kids and the families everywhere. I’m so thankful to everyone for their generosity in making this a reality and making this happen.” She then proceeded to cut the ribbon as Stronger played in the background. Jeff Gordon, the CEO of the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation added "We can’t thank Britney enough being able to do this. Our dream for many, many years has been to be able to have one one building that all of our 45 programs can come together in one place. And that we are able to to today, and that doesn’t happen without someone like Britney Spears. We saw a side of Britney Spears that so many people maybe don’t have the opportunity to see. You realize what a special person Britney is. She’s an incredible performer, we know all that, but she does care and the more we’ve gotten to know her, the more grateful we’ve become to her, and the kids have adored her [...] until today people haven’t totally understood what Britney Spears has meant to this community. We’ve all seen her on stage, we’ve all seen her perform and what a phenomenal performer and entertainer she is, but what’s she’s doing today is another side of Britney that unfortunately most of us haven’t had the opportunity to see before. What she is doing today, and continues to do, is going to benefit thousands of children that comes through this facility, and for that we are sincerely thankful and very, very appreciative." Britney made the donations through the years after her residency started and was involved in different events to support the NCCF:
