The Nebraska Community Foundation works with community, organizational and donor-advised affiliated funds serving 250 communities located in 80 counties. NCF and its affiliated funds have reinvested $269 million in Nebraska since 1994.
The Nebraska Community Foundation (NCF) provides a variety of education and training opportunities for affiliated funds in statewide, regional and local community settings and through interactive Web-based training sessions.
NCF hosts Peer Learning sessions each November in conjunction with its annual celebration banquet. This training allows participants to ask the experts and learn best practices from their peers. Topics may include FAC leadership development, donor visitation, impact grantmaking, effective marketing, action planning and much more.
NCF hosts a library of web-based training sessions for our affiliated funds. These training topics were chosen based on suggestions from affiliated fund leaders. Descriptions and recordings of past webinars are available from the Webinar Trainings page (login required to view recordings).
NCF workshops help affiliated funds to better understand fundraising principles and techniques of using charitable giving as a community betterment strategy. The workshops are designed to build an overall awareness of the various gift tools available.
NCF convenes regional meetings which provide an opportunity for local leaders of affiliated funds to meet and share ideas. Attendees say that networking is a great advantage of being part of NCF. Topics are chosen according to the needs of the communities attending.
Teleconferencing is a way to bring several affiliated fund leaders together to discuss specific topics. Contact NCF to request this service.

The HomeTown Competitiveness youth task force is spearheading a countywide youth advisory council. And, as a token of its commitment to young people, the county gives each high school graduate a full-sized, personalized mailbox with a reminder that they are always welcome home and an invitation to come back.Read more →
