Become a Wear Black, Give Back Ambassador!

Wear Black, Give Back is coming, and UNO needs your help in amplifying one of the biggest days of our year. You can help spread the word to hundreds and thousands of people with a small commitment of just a few clicks — all from the comfort of your home.


As a Wear Black, Give Back Ambassador, you're a part of the WBGB Team. Any UNO alumni, student, employee or fan is eligible! We will equip you with tools to share your Maverick pride within your social network and make an even bigger impact on our students and campus.

  • Sign up to be a WBGB Digital Ambassador by clicking here to email joel.gehringer@nufoundation.org.
  • Watch your email for insider news, exciting updates and challenge announcements.
  • Use our social toolkit to spread the word on social media with #WearBlackGiveBack.
  • Encourage your friends, family and fellow Mavericks around the world to join you as you Wear Black and Give Back on October 28-29. It’s all about participation!
  • Win prizes as you follow, post and share!

All ambassadors who sign up by October 15 will receive an ambassador toolkit, including:

  • a Wear Black, Give Back T-shirt;
  • a Wear Black, Give Back laptop/water bottle sticker; and
  • a Flat Durango to share in your Facebook posts, Instagram photos or Tiktok dances.

Finally, you could win a $100 UNO Bookstore gift card! Each ambassador can create a personalized link by clicking the "Fundraise" button on any support page (see the scholarships example here). These buttons can be found on any area's support page, and it will allow you to create a personalized link with a message and a goal of your choosing. Use this link in your emails and social media posts. Prizes include:

  • A $100 UNO Bookstore gift card for the ambassador who attracts the most donors with their giving link.
  • Three runners-up will receive a UNO beanie!

We will be limited to 100 ambassadors, and toolkits will be delivered on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't wait to sign up!

The time commitment is low, but the potential to advance your favorite university philanthropically is limitless. Sign up today and you'll take the first step toward becoming one of the first Wear Black, Give Back Ambassadors for UNO.
