University of Nevada, Reno Foundation

University of Nevada, Reno Foundation

In a year unlike any other, we want to thank our donors, friends and valued partners for all you do to support our local community and the University of Nevada, Reno. Although we cannot gather together to thank you in-person, we want you to know how much we appreciate your continued support and dedication to the University.

Each year at our annual University of Nevada, Reno Foundation Banquet, we highlight some of the accomplishments of the year at the University made possible through philanthropy and efforts of University friends, supporters and campus colleagues like you.  Since we are unable to meet in person, we want to share some of the ways the Wolf Pack family have come together during the COVID-19 crisis in the video at the top of this page.

We are incredibly proud of our students, volunteers and faculty and how they have stepped up to support our community. In times like these, we’re reminded of how much we depend upon one another. We remain confident in the power of the Wolf Pack family and in our collective ability to come out of this time stronger and more united.

We hope you will consider making a gift to the important initiatives that are providing critical support to our students during this challenging time.

If you would like to make a gift to another area or would like to learn more about supporting the University of Nevada, Reno please contact Lynda Buhlig, Interim Vice President of Development and Alumni Relations, at

Your year-end gift of stock or appreciated securities, including mutual funds or bonds is an easy and powerful way to support the University of Nevada, Reno. A gift of appreciated securities may provide you with greater tax advantages than a gift of cash. When you donate appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year in support of our mission, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer. Please use our stock transfer form and plan to give your broker time to complete the transaction, usually a minimum of three (3) business days or longer during high volume periods. For additional stock/securities transfer information, please call (775) 784-1587 or email
