UNK Fund – Campus Priorities
A gift to this fund enables the chancellor to take advantage of special opportunities as they arise or provide immediate support to areas where students and faculty may need it most.
A national emergency declaration in response to a pandemic virus is new to all of us, and as a fundraising organization, we want to be sensitive to the unique situation of every single student, every alumnus, every friend of the University of Nebraska.
With economic uncertainty a reality for many, we ask for financial support with prudence. At the same time, some in our university family have reached out to ask how they can help, and some student support organizations have reached out to seek assistance. We’ve highlighted some funds below that allow you to help our students, patients and communities during COVID-19.
Whether you’re able to give at this time or not, we extend our wishes for your health and safety.
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 501c3 nonprofit organization created in 1936 by community leaders who wanted to create excellence at the university not possible through state funding alone. We manage more than 11,000 donor funds, an endowment ranked in the top 25 among public universities 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.
The University of Nebraska Foundation (EIN: 47-0379839) is exempt from federal income tax under the provisions of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954.
When you make a gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation you can trust that it will be used in the way in which it was intended. That’s a promise we’ve kept with our donors since our organization was founded in 1936.
