The Athletic Association of the University of Nevada (AAUN) is the central fundraising arm of Wolf Pack athletics and serves as the umbrella organization for all development efforts associated with University of Nevada Intercollegiate Athletics.
Established in 1947, the AAUN provides the athletic department with private financial support for scholarships, facilities, and operations by raising critically needed funds through the Pack Educational Fund and its core giving programs. Wolf Pack athletics is nearly 75% self-supported. Each year it takes several million dollars to fund our student-athletes' educational experience, and through private support, we are better able to meet this financial commitment for over 400 student-athletes.
AAUN Membership includes over 2,500 individuals composed of University of Nevada alumni, friends, and the general northern Nevada community.
Please check back soon for a current roster of AAUN Board members.
