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 provides basic Web pages and online giving capabilities for affiliated funds who would like to develop an online presence. Web pages are provided free of charge as a benefit of affiliation. Online donations to your affiliated fund are possible. Affiliated funds pay only the cost of processing the credit card transaction.
An online presence is important for our community-based and organizational affiliated funds. Having a page on the NCF Web site will help alumni and expatriates find your fund. Fresh and up-to-date information about the mission, vision and values of your affiliated fund will allow your community and expatriates learn more about what you are doing at home and increase the chance that they will contact you for more information or make a donation.
Upon affiliation we will automatically create a basic Web page for you. This page will include:
Generally, your page and online giving capabilities will be ready to go within one month after your affiliation agreement is finalized. NCF will work with you to determine the accounts that may be able to receive online donations.
You can request Web page changes at any time, including which accounts appear on your Web page, those that accept online donations or online giving descriptions. We’d also be happy to post your flyers, brochures, reports and pictures of your events.
The more often you refresh the information on your pages the more likely it is to be of interest to potential donors!
You can see more tips and tricks for both your web page and a Facebook page on our recorded webinar available titled “Two Online Tools to Move Your Mission Forward.”
