In commemoration of a four-decade long friendship, UNLV Athletics and Findlay Automotive have entered into a multi-year, philanthropic partnership dedicated to student-athlete success.

The commitment will also boost the newly formed Runnin’ Rebel Basketball Legacy Campaign, which is dedicated to the re-emergence of UNLV men’s basketball as one of the nation’s elite programs.

Launched in the fall of 2019, the campaign is highlighted by an endowment that is now close to $4 million.

The Momentum Fund Campaign is also a focal point, with a percentage of the funding to provide essential scholarships to deserving student-athletes demonstrating need.

The gift from Findlay Automotive and the Findlay family comes at an especially strategic time for UNLV Athletics, as the department works to overcome the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

In recognition, the Findlay Family name will be displayed in the ribbon of Tarkanian Court at the Thomas & Mack Center, which is a tribute to the longstanding connection between the Findlays and Runnin’ Rebel Basketball.
