Bonuses an incentive for UNLV fundraising

As UNLV enters the last year of a seven-year $500 million fundraising

campaign, two people on campus have an extra incentive to help ensure the

university reaches its goal.

The campaign's success will be one of the objectives that Bill Boldt, vice

president for advancement, must achieve to get his hands on a $25,000

performance bonus.

And former President Carol Harter stands to earn an extra $250,000 if the

school hits the $500 million mark. Harter serves as executive director of

the Black Mountain Institute, a literary think tank at UNLV that depends

largely on private donations.

As of the end of last September, UNLV had raised $378.8 million. The school

is expected to release updated fundraising figures this month.
