Thank you for your interest in the University of Nevada, Reno.

The University of Nevada, Reno has been fulfilling its promise to serve Nevada and the world as a land-grant institution since 1874. The knowledge, discoveries, and technologies that are nurtured and created at Nevada in labs, classrooms, and libraries improve the lives of people around the world.
The state of Nevada no longer provides the bulk of the University’s budget. Therefore, the support of alumni, parents, and friends is crucial to fulfill the University’s mission of excellence in teaching, research, and public service.

Your support helps Nevada’s students and faculty pursue their work across the campus, throughout the state and around the world. It also helps Nevada reach out to future generations of students. Through your support, Nevada will continue to generate the kind of talent and ideas that have earned recognition as a nationally ranked Tier 1 university.

We encourage you to become a part of the Nevada legacy by making a gift today.
