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.
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.
These conferences are open to Fund Advisory Committee members as well as national audiences. They provide an excellent opportunity for affiliated fund leaders to network and share with other rural leaders from across the country who are working to accomplish similar goals.
