The Nebraska Community Foundation works with community, organizational and donor-advised affiliated funds serving more than 250 communities located in 80 Nebraska counties. NCF and its affiliated funds have reinvested $163 million in Nebraska since 1993.
NCF hosts periodic multi-day conferences that draw both statewide and national participants. The conferences offer plenary and break-out sessions that explain NCF’s model for community development philanthropy and provide strategies for adapting the model in different rural environments.
