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.
Creating materials to raise awareness and contributions for your affiliated fund is an ongoing process. You will need a variety of materials to express your vision, your mission and your commitment to community. If you do not have a clear sense of your vision and mission, and your relationship to the community, go to the section on Getting Started, and then begin thinking about all the possibilities you have to promote your affiliated fund.
Due to reduced state aid, the Norfolk school district was unable to fund its High Achievers summer classes in 2011. Thanks to the Connie Endowment Fund, children were able to participate through an alternative Summer Arts Challenge at the Norfolk Arts Center.
