The Drive for 1,957 - Let's do this!!
Oct 12, 2018

Thank you, thank you, thank you ...THANK YOU!!!

 

Because of you, we have raised approximately $525,000 from nearly 1,650 gifts as of 3:45pm PT during our inaugural #RebelsGive.

 

This enormous demonstration of Rebel generosity has inspired us to push for a goal we never imagined would be possible - raising 1,957 gifts to match our 1957 founding.

 

Can we do it? Absolutely - and you can help us get there in two ways:

  • Log on and make another gift. There are still dozens of matches and challenges that will allow you to double the impact of your gift!
  • Share, share, and share some more on social media. Every time you post the RebelsGive.UNLV.edu link to Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn or share via email or text message, we get closer to our goal.

1,957 for 1957 - help us make it happen and finish #RebelsGive strong!

 

Thank you!

 

Cory

Oct 11, 2018

Hey Rebels! It's been an amazing day 1 of the inaugural #RebelsGive. As the evening approaches, you've given close to $300,000 from nearly 900 gifts.

 

You. Are. Amazing. THANK YOU!!!

 

And guess what? There are still TONS of opportunities to double your gift through the matches currently live on the site. For example:

Are you interested in making another gift? Go to Rebelsgive.unlv.edu and give now to double your impact! Or, share the links on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, on email, or via text message. When you paste the RebelsGive.UNLV.edu link, a custom graphic appears in your social media platform of choice. Sharing across social media is proven to drive fundraising support. So sharing truly is more than caring!

 

Then check out this special "thank you" message from two of our top #Rebelambassadors - Sam Lieberman, '96, Board of Regents, Nevada System of Higher Education and Stacy Swim, '98, Fine Arts Chapter President.
