Membership in the Burnett Society is reserved for those who have named the foundation as a beneficiary of their estate or have made a planned gift to the foundation. As a Burnett Society member, you join a distinguished group of people who share a common vision for the future of the University of Nebraska and believe in its mission.
The details of your gift are always confidential. We will not release gift information or publish your name without your consent. You may also decline membership in the Burnett Society or request anonymity.
Knowledgeable staff members are available to answer your questions about the benefits of planned giving. By working together on your gift arrangement, we can ensure your wishes will be clearly represented and carried out.
As a reminder, the appropriate designation in all legal language is: the University of Nebraska Foundation, a nonprofit corporation.
Our Burnett Society members enjoy several special events throughout the year planned specifically for them, such as campus tours, lunches and educational opportunities. If you are interested in learning more or would like to make a planned gift to benefit the University of Nebraska, please contact any member of the gift planning team.
