"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
Women Investing in Nebraska
Women Investing in Nebraska (WIN) is an initiative dedicated to focused, collective giving. We welcome all women who want to positively impact the state of Nebraska and its university through philanthropy. For more information, please visit the Women Investing in Nebraska website at womeninvestinginnebraska.org.
String of Pearls
Individual pearls are beautiful, but joined with others they become something wonderful. Individuals involved in philanthropy accomplish great things. However, combined with others, their strength is magnified and the power of their giving increased. That's the idea behind WIN.
Nebraska Women Helping Nebraska
Many women in Nebraska understand the importance of philanthropy. All have their own areas of interest. What WIN does is join together Nebraska women to help charities across the state. By encouraging personal growth, learning and collaboration, WIN invests in the lives of our members while offering substantial support to Nebraska's nonprofit organizations.
Strength in Numbers
Women who join WIN contribute $2,400 a year, $1,200 a year or $500 a year. We encourage members to stay involved for at least three years because a stable membership ensures a reliable source of funding for Nebraska's nonprofit community. Annual contributions are pooled, then shared 50/50 between the University of Nebraska and Nebraska-based charities. With sufficient membership WIN will develop a six-figure philanthropic treasure chest each year for the University of Nebraska and the selected Nebraska nonprofit. A one-person, one-vote process will determine what members would like to fund at the university and what Nebraska-based charity they would like to support.
WIN is a win, win
WIN gives Nebraska women the opportunity to join together and participate in something greater than the sum of its parts. Such collaboration benefits the university and charities in Nebraska. Everyone wins.
Whether you are an established philanthropist or seeking to make your first gift, an alumna of the university or simply a friend, WIN invites you to join us in helping Nebraska win. The more members, the greater our giving power. To join or for more information, please call 800-432-3216 or contact us online.
