Ways to Give

The School of Nursing is indebted to those individuals, families and organizations that provide financial support for our undergraduate and graduate students.

Below are the ways you can help our school.

Send a Check

Make payable to the UNLV Foundation and send to:

Patrice Hester-Harper
UNLV School of Nursing
Box 453018
Las Vegas, NV 89154-3018

Please be sure you indicate the fund you wish to support.

Establish an Endowment

A scholarship endowment fund is similar to a savings account or an investment account. The income from the endowment fund is used to support a scholarship, but the principal of the fund remains untouched. The endowment fund thus provides scholarship support for students in perpetuity. New endowments are the most pressing need for the school. These funds provide essential resources for faculty chairs, professorships, student scholarships and specialty programs.

Planned Giving

Although outright gifts provide crucial resources for current programs, deferred gifts build the UNLV School of Nursing for the future. Giving through estate plans or life income gifts is particularly desirable for those who would like to support the school with a significant gift that may not be possible during their lifetime. Planned gifts have a meaningful impact on our goals and interests, beyond your lifetime and far into the future.


Gifts-in-kind are items of tangible personal property. Gifts are donated to the school and recorded at fair market value. Contact Patrice Hester, director of development, at 702-895-1230 or [email protected].
