Women Investing in Nebraska (WIN) operates in partnership with the University of Nebraska Foundation and the UNF Charitable Gift Fund to educate, engage and empower women philanthropists through collective giving and grant-making.
Since 2011 WIN members have pooled their gifts to grant nearly $1.4 million to nine University of Nebraska and nine Nebraska nonprofit projects touching lives across the state. WIN seeks out bold, innovative projects addressing issues of importance to Nebraskans and makes two grants each year through member-driven vetting and voting processes.
Membership is open to women who want to positively impact Nebraska and its university through philanthropy, learn about issues that matter to Nebraskans and experience collective giving and grant-making. Please visit womeninvestinginnebraska.org for information about WIN’s members, recent grants and grant-making process.
Membership levels are $500, $1,200 or $2,400 a year. WIN funds are then divided equally into two grants that are awarded to a University of Nebraska project and a Nebraska nonprofit project each year. All members of record on June 30 are eligible to vote on grants.
Memberships gifts can be processed through credit or debit transactions by clicking the Join button below, via payroll deduction for University of Nebraska and University of Nebraska Foundation employees or by check made out to UNF Charitable Gift Fund, with WIN or Women Investing in Nebraska noted in the memo line.
