The college-going experience is not always easy, especially for students who may experience a family crisis or some other personal setback. The Student Crisis Scholarship Fund enables UNK to assist students during their difficult times.

The First-Generation Nebraska program also seeks support for the range of services and programs it provides to Huskers who are the first in their family to attend college.

University of Nebraska Medical Center
At UNMC, opportunities exist to help one of the UNMC Innovation Funds or the Munroe-Meyer Institute Century of Caring campaign as the institute begins its next 100 years of changing lives.

Nebraska Medicine
There are rewarding opportunities to support the state’s No. 1 health care network on Giving Tuesday and throughout the year.

University of Nebraska at Omaha
Food insecurity is becoming more evident on college campuses, and UNO is no exception. The Maverick Food Pantry aims to contribute to UNO’s culture of caring by providing resources to those in immediate need and connecting them with resources for long-term support.
