The Nebraska Community Foundation works with community, organizational and donor-advised affiliated funds serving 254 communities located in 78 counties. NCF and its affiliated funds have reinvested $222.7 million in Nebraska since 1994.
The Platte River Recovery Implementation Program Fund was established in support of the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program. The Program has three main elements:
• Increasing stream flows in the central Platte River during relevant time periods
• Enhancing, restoring and protecting habitat lands for the target bird species
• Accommodating certain new water-related activities
The program is led by a Governance Committee (GC) consisting of representatives of Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, the Bureau of Reclamation, the Fish and Wildlife Service, water users, and environmental groups.
As an affiliated fund of the Nebraska Community Foundation, all contributions to the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program Fund are tax-deductible. The Nebraska Community Foundation is confirmed in compliance with the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations, and has met the nation’s highest philanthropic standards of operational quality, integrity and accountability.
