Become a Scarlet Loyal

Alumni hold a special place in our hearts. Financial support from alumni help fund programs for students and alumni. In addition, giving by alumni counts toward five percent of the total score used by U.S. News and World Reports to rank UNLV among its peers. Your donation is a vote of confidence in your alma mater. Your donation helps lift UNLV’s ranking which in turn increases the value of your degree.

To become a Scarlet Loyal donor, contribute $100 or more cumulatively each fiscal year to the fund or funds of your choice at UNLV.

Scarlet Streak

Scarlet Loyal donors who consecutively give each calendar year bank points toward their Scarlet Streak. Special recognition will be given to donors at the 5 year and 10 year anniversary. Don’t break your streak! Make sure to contribute each year at the Scarlet Loyal amount of $100 or more to the fund or funds of your choice.

1957 Society

UNLV was founded in 1957. In recognition of donors of $1,000 or more each fiscal year, we’ve created the 1957 Society. Society members are alumni and friends who care deeply about student success and advancing the university to meet the needs of our community. Join the 1957 Society by making a $1,000 contribution to the fund or funds of your choice at UNLV.
