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.
Nebraska Community Foundation is pleased to welcome Janny Crotty to our team of affiliated fund development coordinators. Crotty will provide training and technical assistance to NCF’s community-based affiliated funds to build community awareness and engagement, conduct successful fundraising efforts and increase community impact through grantmaking and convening.
Crotty most recently served as certification officer at Peru State College where she administered education certification programs, taught and developed curriculum for orientation courses, and served as a student academic advisor.
While earning her master’s degree in documentary film and history from Syracuse University she assisted with numerous educational and technical programs, including the Urban Video Project and the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism.
Crotty was the University of Nebraska Foundation development officer for the 2015 Vision – a three-pronged partnership between UNL, the City of Lincoln and the private sector – managing communications and campaign strategies among numerous public and private sector partners. These efforts led to several of the City’s recent major developments, including Pinnacle Bank Arena, the Railyard, Innovation Campus and more. During her tenure at the NU Foundation she served on advisory boards for the Sheldon Museum of Art, the Lied Center for Performing Arts and the UNL Library System and managed a large portfolio of donors providing stewardship and appropriate recognition.
When she is not helping volunteers in communities across southeast Nebraska, Janny Crotty works from her home office in Auburn, where she lives with her husband, Ryan, and two children, Liston and Nash.
