University of Nebraska Foundation

Our mission is to grow relationships and resources that enable the University of Nebraska to change lives and save lives.

The University of Nebraska Foundation is a 501©3 nonprofit organization created in 1936 by community leaders who wanted to create excellence at the university not possible through state funding alone. We manage nearly 12,000 donor funds, an endowment ranked among the top 25 of public institutions and keep our cost of fundraising below that of our peers.
Our vision is to be recognized as the trusted partner of those wishing to support the University of Nebraska and its affiliates.
