The Bullers have made Charitable Giving a Central Part of their Lives
Wayne and Bev Buller
Wayne and Bev Buller have made charitable giving a central part of their lives. They have chosen to continue their charitable giving beyond their lifetimes through their estate plan. We are proud to include these generous Nebraskans as members of our Legacy Society Stakeholders Club and Jim and Elaine Wolf Club.
Wayne and Bev Buller were born and raised in Nebraska. Bev is a lifelong resident of Boone County. Wayne moved there in 1982 when he and Bev were wed. Together they have nine children; seven living in Nebraska.
The Bullers care deeply about community. After moving to a home near Lake Ericson in Wheeler County, the Bullers issued a $25,000 challenge grant to other residents to establish a permanent endowment for maintenance and improvements on the lake. Wayne and Bev’s contributions to this effort and to other NCF affiliated funds total over $160,000.
Wayne and Bev have gone one step further. They have created a significant bequest in their will to benefit the Nebraska Community Foundation to ensure our assistance to affiliated funds all across Nebraska. Later, Wayne and Bev stepped forward again and created a gift annuity to benefit NCF.
“God has blessed us richly and I wanted to share with NCF because you are doing worthy work,” Wayne said.
The Bullers are people of deep faith. They provide support to many Christian organizations, including significant gifts to build St. Petersburg Christian University in Russia and a church in Haiti.
“It feels good to give back to the causes, the places and people you love. But it also feels good to know that your gifts are being handled in the same professional way that you would run your own business. We feel this kind of trust with the Nebraska Community Foundation,” said Bev.
