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.
Call NCF as soon as you find out that your affiliated fund may be asked or may volunteer to help raise funds for a capital project in your community. Capital projects include the construction, renovation or improvement of a physical facility such as a community center, swimming pool, library, fire hall or park. NCF must confirm whether the project is, in fact, charitable and discuss with you risk management based on NCF’s fundraising experience with such projects.
Refer to NCF’s Policy Regarding Fundraising for Capital Projects for information on mitigating risks associated with capital projects. NCF’s policies and procedures help you minimize the many risks associated with such projects due to the substantial amount of money that must be raised, liability during the construction activity, the extended time frame for the project, requirements of possible funding from federal and/or state government and/or other foundation grantors, etc.
