Posted: Fri, Aug 12, 2016
The University of Nebraska Foundation mourns the loss of Dick Holland, who died August 9, 2016. Mr. Holland was dedicated to many causes, including the University of Nebraska. His gifts to the University of Nebraska at Omaha to support Baxter Arena, the College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media and the UNO Alumni Association and to the University of Nebraska Medical Center to support regenerative medicine, public health, cancer, health science education and basic research have made the university and the state of Nebraska better places for all.
Mr. Holland’s family has designated several charities for his memorial, including the Richard Holland Early Childhood Institute Workforce Development Fund. This fund, which Mr. Holland generously supported during his lifetime, supports the work of the Buffett Early Childhood Institute in preparing teachers and caregivers for young children. Children with the greatest needs were one of the issues Mr. Holland held closest to his heart. A gift to this memorial fund may be made here.
