We are very pleased to announce three applicants were chosen to receive grant funding from the Stern Family Foundation based upon recommendations made by the inaugural, Spring 2014 UNLV Grantwell class. Congratulations to Baby’s Bounty (, the Nevada Ballet Theatre (, and the Nevada Diabetes Association ( Thank you to the more than 50 local nonprofit organizations who applied for funding; you were all an integral part of our education and experience this semester. We encourage you to continue following UNLV Grantwell as we learn, grow, and work with additional donors in the future.
