The Nebraska Community Foundation works with community, organizational and donor-advised affiliated funds serving 255 communities located in 78 counties. NCF and its affiliated funds have reinvested $243.2 million in Nebraska since 1994.
Whether you think of yourself as rich or poor or somewhere in between, your gift to your community will make a lasting impression. The “Good Life” we cherish in Nebraska is worth preserving and passing on to the next generation.
Here in Nebraska we are proud of our hometowns. Your planned gift continues that tradition of investing in the future. You can provide for both your family and your community. There are also gifts that have immediate tax benefits and ensure that you or a loved one receives income payments for life, with the promise of a future charitable gift.

An endowment is a permanent charitable fund whose assets are invested to generate an ongoing source of income year after year. That means your gift, and your legacy, will last for generations.
