University Foundation celebrates 40 years
In 2021, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the University of Nevada, Reno Foundation. The Foundation was incorporated in 1981 to help the University meet its needs beyond base funding by generating private support.
In 2020-21, the Foundation provided more than $40.4 million in support of University programs, capital projects and student scholarships across campus. Each year, donor support also provided more than $8 million in students support through donor-funded scholarships — helping more than 4,000 students receive critical support to pursue their degrees.
Thanks to the generosity of each and every one of our donors, students are thriving, groundbreaking research is being conducted on campus and the future looks bright.
