The University of Nebraska Foundation

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to the advancement of the University of Nebraska

Since 1936, the University of Nebraska Foundation has existed to accomplish one goal - to advance the University of Nebraska. While independent from the university, we are intrinsically linked to it, connecting the dreams and passions of donors to the mission of the university, and stewarding donor generosity across its four campuses.
We believe the value of a donation cannot be measured in mere dollars and cents; private gifts have the power to transform not only higher education, but lives and communities as well. We believe the relationship with the donor is as valuable as the gift, and philanthropy should be fulfilling, inspiring and fun. Most of all, we believe our integrity, not our endowment, is our greatest asset.
