[UNLV MEN] The UNLV men's soccer program has received a record-setting donation to the program of $850,000 from the Engelstad Family Foundation.

Ralph and Betty Engelstad started the foundation. Kris Engelstad McGarry is their daughter, and her husband, Tim McGarry, was a member of the UNLV men’s soccer team during the 1978 and 1979 seasons. The gift will be distributed to the program over a five-year period, beginning with a check of $250,000 that was received last month by UNLV. In 2012, $210,000 will be given, $170,000 in 2013, $130,000 in 2014 and $90,000 in 2015.

The Engelstad Family Foundation has a rich history of philanthropy and has touched many people and organizations throughout the country. It has been in existence for over 10 years and has donated more than $100 million to organizations in the Las Vegas area.

"We are very excited about this gift and are extremely thankful to the Engelstad Family Foundation," said head coach Rich Ryerson. "It will allow our players to finish their careers and will give us the opportunity to recruit with a strong base for the future. Our goal is to compete at the highest level both regionally and nationally, and this gift will help us to accomplish that."
