The Fund for Nevada – Annual Giving

Fund for Nevada LogoAnnual Giving Programs are Nevada's yearly fund-raising efforts that provide the opportunity for alumni and friends to give to the university and the specific colleges, schools, or programs of their choice.

Our goals include increasing the number of donors, securing annual gifts, and enhancing relationships between alumni, friends, and the University of Nevada, Reno. Ultimately, the Annual Giving Programs seek to apply your gifts to the enhancement of academic programs currently offered on campus in order to benefit Nevada students.

A word of thanks to our alumni, friends, faculty/staff, parents and students who made gifts to the Annual Fund:

Every gift is appreciated.
Every gift counts.
Thank you for your investment in our future.


The University of Nevada, Reno's needs will continue to grow as state assistance shrinks. Active involvement is important to our future.

If you are a member of the alumni body, please consider that increased participation statistics figure prominently in the way Nevada is evaluated by corporate and foundation donors. By participating in the cycle of regular contributions, donors show their support for Nevada.

  • Friends of Nevada $1-249

*A society established to honor the founding of the University by making an unrestricted gift of at least $1,874.


There are two ways to give to the University:

Restricted Gifts are designated to the school, college or program of your choice ensuring vital funding for the area(s) where you are passionate.

Unrestricted Gifts given through the Annual Giving Program are important because they provide current and immediately expendable support for the University's basic operations. One way the University solicits for unrestricted funds is through the Class Endowment Challenge Campaign. This campaign solicits on a class-by-class basis, utilizing the spirit of competition to benefit the University. Funds raised are endowed so that they can be used into perpetuity. A portion of the interest from the funds are used for scholarships and wherever expendable dollars are needed most.
