Every gift makes a difference — shaping our campus by supporting our students, faculty and staff.
Students like ... Carly Sanguinetti (class of 2025), studying nutrition and planning to go on to dentistry, who say scholarships are key to achieving their dreams on campus and beyond. “Scholarships are the only reason I am able to attend the University, and I am grateful that I can live my dream.”
Faculty like ... 2022 Foundation Professor of Chemistry Ana de Bettencourt-Dias who first came to Nevada in 2007 to continue her research on the f elements. These light-emitting elements are already widely used in cellphones and cars, but de Bettencourt-Dias says this is just the beginning for these rare earth elements. “The opportunities that I’ve had here at the University and also the donor funds that we have received for our research have enabled us to move beyond just light-emitting materials. We have gotten into the field of cellular imaging which helps unravel cellular processes and learn more about metabolism and diseases. In time, the insights we’ve gained from our work on cytotoxic materials and photodynamic therapies may lead to more effective cancer therapies.”
And programs like ... the Desert Farming Initiative, which provided more than three tons of fresh produce to northern Nevada food pantries, including our own Pack Provisions, last year. Thanks to support from the University Foundation’s first year of Pack Partnership Grants, DFI has grown its community impact even further — adding three competitive student internships that provide students hands-on experience focused on their passions, including a Food Sovereignty Program run by Indigenous students, a food security project and on-farm work advancing climate-smart agriculture.
By donating to the University on Tuesday, March 28, you’ll be helping our campus continue to thrive. So, please mark your calendars now for Giving Day: The Wolf Pack Way.
