Nevada Women’s Athletics Alpha Fund Nutrition Program

In a Wolf Pack, the Alpha is the leader and needs to be the strongest Wolf in the Pack. The ‘Alpha Fund’ was created to provide nutrition education and quality calories to help our women’s student-athletes maximize their strength and reach peak performance in training, competition and in the classroom. We are currently providing limited education and post workout smoothies to our female student-athletes. Creating this fund allows maximum flexibility for all of our women’s programs that practice and compete at all different times and days of the week.

Our ultimate goal is to provide one full meal using high quality, fresh ingredients each day for our more than 200 female student-athletes, whether using campus dining options or local community restaurant delivery. While our initial goal is $100,000, it will take approximately $200,000 annually to fully fund this program.

We need your support to help raise awareness and funds for our newly established Alpha Fund. Your gift will be directly contributing to the success of our women’s sports and athletes by increasing the nutrition we can provide.

In addition to the one-time giving options on the right-hand side of this page, you can also make multi-year commitments to allow us to solidify our future plans. We will also need leadership gifts of more than $5,000 to fully fund this program. To see the impact a leadership gift would have on this initiative, please see below. For any questions regarding a gift of more than $5,000, or if you would like to make a multi-year commitment, please contact Craig Fink, Senior Associate Athletic Director of Development, at cfink@unr.edu or 775-682-6977.
