Thank you for your support

Investments in the College of Fine Arts by community members, students, parents, alumni, corporations, foundations and UNLV faculty and staff strengthen our role as a leading center for the study, practice and development of the arts. These investments are made through attendance at special events, gifts to specific programs and undesignated gifts to the Dean’s Leadership Circle fund and Student and/or Faculty Development funds.

These undesignated gifts are part of our annual giving program – an ongoing effort to increase yearly donations to support the College of Fine Arts directly.

Opportunities to support the College of Fine Arts include:

  • Dean's Leadership Circle — For a minimum donation of $1,000, or more annually, you or your company join a distinguished group of supporters who enable Dean Nancy Uscher to allocate funds where the need is greatest.

    UNLV College of Fine Arts is wildly ambitious, and there could be no more meaningful way to celebrate this investment in shaping the future of our college! This fund allows us to pursue maverick ideas aligned with our strategic plan.

    To acknowledge and recognize you for this generous philanthropy, you will receive invitations to exclusive experiences hosted by the college. Dean’s Leadership Circle donors will also be invited annually to an appreciation reception for their commitment.

    Become a member of the Dean’s Leadership Circle!
  • Rebel Arts General Fund — By giving to the Rebel Arts General Fund, you show your support by providing resources that we can pool with other donations to take advantage of innovative opportunities or meet immediate program needs.

    Make a Tribute/Memorial gift in honor of a loved one. Remember loved ones or friends through a memorial or tribute gift. You can give to the fine arts fund(s) that you are most passionate about.

  • Student Development and Faculty Development programs — Gifts to these programs enable students or faculty to accept invitations to perform nationally and internationally. Current opportunities to perform include the Fringe Festival in Adelaide, Australia; the Kennedy Center, France, and Mexico, to name a few. Gifts to these programs may also provide for new instruments, music and special equipment.
  • Scholarships — More than half of all students who attend UNLV require financial assistance as they pursue their educations. Scholarship funds are an important investment to help ensure that all students are able to realize their dreams of higher-education degrees.
  • Directed gifts to specific departments or programs within the College of Fine Arts.
