Recognition Societies

Celebrating donor loyalty and leadership

All gifts matter, and giving societies are one way for us to say thank you to our most generous and loyal donors. Through giving societies, we honor those whose gifts help change lives and save lives.

When you become a part of one or more giving societies, we show our appreciation and recognize you for your contributions and commitment to the University of Nebraska.

The University of Nebraska doesn’t expand and grow without the generous support of private donors.

University of Nebraska Foundation Giving Society

University of Nebraska Foundation Giving Society members directly influence the University of Nebraska and its stature as an institution dedicated to teaching, research, and service, strengthening the national and international reputation of the institution. Many programs would go unfunded, or could not achieve the next level of excellence, without support from these loyal individuals and organizations. 

It is our goal to make sure members of the Giving Society know how much we value their dedication and tremendous investment in the University of Nebraska. To offer our thanks and recognition, Giving Society members may receive a number of courtesies, including specialized digital communications, foundation and university publications, invitations to campus events and activities, as well as public recognition and acknowledgment at member events.
