We make science useful and accessible to Nevadans, inspiring future learning, growing tomorrow's leaders and addressing critical issues facing local communities. Your support helps keep Extension resources available and affordable.
We welcome volunteers! Volunteers provide added value to the work of paid staff, expanding services to the community that the Extension may not otherwise afford.
Practical information you can trust. Articles and news on topics you're interested in. Delivered.
From supporting 4-H'ers to advancing innovative research on critical issues facing Nevada communities, we care about many of the same things you do. You can support Extension in a way that is most meaningful to you. Possibilities include:
Endowments generate a steady stream of income while leaving the principal untouched. Alumni, faculty, parents and friends of Extension who make endowment gifts are attracted to the opportunity to ensure that the institution, or a particular program or activity, will exist in perpetuity. Behind each endowment gift is a personal motivation to repay a debt of gratitude for the donor's own education, to honor a loved one or simply to make a positive impact. Gifts to endowment may be made in cash, securities, real estate, or through planned giving or a bequest.
To learn more about establishing an endowment to support Extension, contact our Director of Development, Robin Schimandle.
You can make a gift by sending a check payable to University of Nevada, Reno Foundation to our Director's office. Specify the programs or activities you'd like to support in the memo line.
You can make a one-time or recurring gift online with a credit or debit card. Specify the programs or activities you'd like to support in the comment section of the donation process.
Estate planning can help you to achieve your philanthropic goals now and for years to come while reducing taxes and ensuring your estate's distribution reflects your wishes.
Giving is personal. Let us help you give what you want, how you want.
