Core Values







Dear Rebel Athletic Fund Members,

As we fulfill 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 this mission while making you, our university and our great city of Las Vegas proud along the way.

Your confidence continues to fuel our Drive for 5 campaign as we are now over 3,000 members pointing to 5,000. Your trust is also felt as excitement builds around Allegiant 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, we launch a new era for Rebel Football and a new era of excellence for Rebel Athletics.

The accomplishments made possible by your support are many and you can feel the momentum building with each new day. I will confirm, however, that our work has only just begun. What we do in the months and years to come will define the future of our program.

I ask, therefore, that you please remain steadfast in your commitment. Through your giving, we have a foundation for greatness in place. Let us now, as Rebels, 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!
