You can help turn our research into a real-world commercial opportunity. We work with our faculty to transform innovative ideas into life-changing products and services, and your donation is an investment in that work – an investment that will grow and continuously support our efforts to drive economic diversity in Nevada and further enhance our reputation as a leading research institute.

Innovation-to-Commercialization Fund

The Innovation-to-Commercialization Fund is designed to bring support to the commercialization of UNLV discoveries. Commercialization not only brings the university's innovations to the marketplace, but also disseminates knowledge widely, diversifies Nevada's economy, creates jobs, generates revenue for the university, and provides real-world opportunities for students.

Donations to the Innovation-to-Commercialization Fund will provide much-needed resources for commercialization and economic development opportunities that will engage and benefit UNLV's faculty and students, the public, and the business community. Your gift, no matter the size, will help provide the margin of excellence that cannot be reached by state support alone.

Support Through the UNLV Research Foundation

The mission of the foundation is to support UNLV research and to support economic development in Southern Nevada by developing and maintaining UNLV research and technology parks as perpetual assets to enhance intellectual, scientific, and financial growth for the university.
