The power of crowds

The University of Nebraska Foundation has a crowdfunding portal available for passionate supporters of the University of Nebraska!

Our mission-inspired, project-focused tool enables passionate members of the general public, student organizations, alumni and University of Nebraska faculty and staff to raise funds for special projects and help proposals reach new heights.

To make Nebraska Grow.

Our easy-to-use, mobile-optimized online platform helps engage communities and elevate campaigns, maximizing donor conversion. Put another way, our tool helps bring critical awareness to great causes.

We’ve helped The Daily Nebraskan continue to train aspiring journalists and the University of Nebraska at Kearney volleyball team generate funds for a new, safer court, among other campaigns.
