We are thrilled to welcome Secretary Clinton to UNLV, continuing our tradition of a long line of influential speakers, including former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell, former President Bill Clinton, former U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole, and former first lady Barbara Bush.
The speaking fee, which, per the original agreement, will be entirely given as a donation to the non-profit Clinton Foundation, comes from donors' private contributions for this event.
Thanks to speakers like Secretary Clinton, our annual dinner has evolved from a donor recognition event to a fund raiser that supports the important work of the UNLV Foundation. We couldn't do it without them. Since its inception in 1981, the UNLV Foundation has raised more than $1 billion in gifts and gift commitments to support the university.
We're looking forward to welcoming Secretary Clinton to UNLV in the fall.
