2019-20 Donor Membership Guide

Dear Rebel Athletic Fund Members, As we work to live up to our commitment to graduating leaders, winning championships and excelling in all that we do, your philanthropic support has never been more important. Your generosity provides our student-athletes resources essential to meeting our mission while making you, our university and our great city of Las Vegas proud along the way. Motivated by your support, our athletics department has made great progress over the past 18 months. Services provided through your leadership have enabled our student- athletes to earn a collective 3.0 GPA in three consecutive semesters for the first time in our history. Energized by your unwavering support, we won five conference championships last year along with the Governor’s Series title. We painted the Fremont Cannon red and broke ground on the Fertitta Football Complex – a facility made possible by your philanthropy. Your giving has furnished our baseball and tennis programs with new state-of- the-art scoreboards; will transform the Runnin’ Rebels’ locker room in the Thomas & Mack Center; and will create a comprehensive center for student-athlete excellence inside the Lied Athletic Complex. Your confidence continues to fuel our Drive for 5 campaign as we are now more than 3,000 members en route to our goal of 5,000. Your passion is also felt as excitement builds around Las Vegas Stadium. In the fall of 2020, we will begin play in what many believe will be the finest facility of its kind in the world. When we take the field against Cal that Saturday, we will launch a new era for Rebel Football and a new era of excellence for Rebel Athletics. Therefore, I ask that you please remain steadfast in your commitment. It is my hope that this guidebook provides added inspiration as you consider future support. Through your giving, we have a foundation for greatness in place. As Rebels, let us now build on what we have created to personify our mission and position our student-athletes for lifelong success. Thank you for making a difference and Go Rebels! Desiree Reed-Francois Last day to make a contribution and receive a receipt for the 2019 tax year TO OUR LOYAL SUPPORTERS
