Giving Matters

Your gift to UNLV changes lives and strengthens our community.

The scholarship took away a lot of stress of being a new dad and helped me focus more on school. I really don’t know how to express how grateful I am. I want to be a great physical therapist so that I can make a difference in other people’s lives.
