Help where it's needed most

From supporting students to advancing innovative research on critical issues facing Nevada communities, we care about many of the same things you do. You can support the College in a way that is most meaningful to you. Possibilities include:

  • Funding student internships
  • Donating supplies to a program
  • Creating a scholarship fund
  • Establishing an endowed chair or professorship
  • Supporting community educational events and activities
  • Becoming a Master Gardener volunteer or a volunteer 4-H leader
  • Donating funds to build a new or update an existing College facility
  • Supporting leadership development opportunities for volunteers and youth
  • Funding the development and printing of resource materials for use in our educational programs

Gifting an endowment

Endowments generate a steady stream of income while leaving the principal untouched. Alumni, faculty, parents and friends of the College who make endowment gifts are attracted to the opportunity to ensure that the institution, or a particular program or activity, will exist in perpetuity. Behind each endowment gift is a personal motivation to repay a debt of gratitude for the donor's own education, to honor a loved one or simply to make a positive impact. Gifts to endowment may be made in cash, securities or real estate, or through planned giving or a bequest. To learn more about establishing an endowment to support the College's academic, Experiment Station and/or Extension units, contact our Director of Development, Mitch Klaich.

You can make a gift by sending a check payable to University of Nevada, Reno Foundation to our Dean's office. Specify the programs or activities you'd like to support in the memo line.
