UNLV ATHLETICS TAKING PART IN THIRD ANNUAL #REBELSGIVE FUNDRAISING DRIVE
$250,000 lead gift from the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education energizes two-day drive dedicated to student-athlete success
UNLV’s official annual days of giving, the “Rebels Give” initiative, started today as a university-wide effort to support student-centered excellence.
Student-athlete development represents the primary focus for UNLV Athletics with Rebels Give providing an opportunity to build on the success of the Rebel Athletic Fund’s Momentum Fund. With traditional revenue streams compromised by the pandemic, the Momentum Fund has been an essential source of support, fueling critical priorities to include scholarships, academic services and overall wellness.
The department’s goal for this two-day giving campaign is full participation from the RAF membership. Give 100% is the mantra symbolizing the significance of participation.
Reflecting the magnitude of this important opportunity is a $250,000 Give 100% commitment from the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education, dedicated to student-athlete success.
Support received from the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education over the past two years has been extraordinary, with the Rebels Give contribution emblematic of a proud and truly transformational partnership.
“Rebels Give 100% provides an important opportunity to celebrate the strength of our Rebel Athletic Fund community and the life-changing impact of philanthropy on our student-athletes,” said UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois. “Our incredible relationship with the Andre Agassi Foundation personifies impact, excellence and lifelong success, which is the spirit of Rebels Give. It is our hope that their generosity will inspire others to see Rebels Give 100% as an essential opportunity for impact.”
Rebels Give donations will primarily advance three student-athlete success pillars as donors can assign their support to scholarships, academic support services or nutrition. Donors also have the option of leaving funds donated unrestricted.
