Our Donors Are Our Superheroes!

Over the years, the UNLV Foundation’s seasonal thank you video has had a variety of looks and themes, usually featuring students who have benefited from programs and scholarships funded by private gifts. Last year, the storyline featured jazz studies student Gary Fowler performing an original song, “You Paved the Way.”

This time around, we drew inspiration from UNLV’s recent homecoming theme, Superheroes, as well as classic comic books and modern superhero movies. We wanted to express our gratitude for our donors and show that anyone could be a hero through the simple act of making a gift.

They say that with great power comes great responsibility, so we turned to those very donors to help get the message out.
