Rebel In Action: Association Volunteers
Volunteer Appreciation is here and UNLV has so much to be thankful for. Volunteers are the foundation of everything that we do and are at the core of our accomplishments. Thanks to your efforts we are able to give back to our students and alumni alike. In doing so, we are forging connections and friendships through every aspect of our outreach and making our university a better place.
In 2018, we attained an exceptional amount of outreach and events due to the dedicated and hardworking volunteers who partnered with the Alumni Association. Thanks to all of the selfless alumni that volunteered their time, the Alumni Association was able to reimagine and put on our Homecoming celebrations, which managed to host over 4,000 attendees ranging from students to staff, alumni, and even members of the community. This was a huge feat, but it was far from being the only one.
Through the combined effort of the Division of Philanthropy and Alumni Engagement, the crowdfunding campaign, Rebels Give was launched. In just 1,957 minutes, 2,026 gifts were received totaling $927,000 for UNLV departments and programs. During this campaign, #RebelsGive was trending due to the tremendous support shown by students, alumni, community members, faculty and staff, along with all of our UNLV supporters - our Rebel Ambassadors helped us reach over 400,000 impressions on social media.
These amazing feats would be difficult without those that dedicated their time, talent, and treasure to UNLV. Thank you!
