Resources for Professional Advisers

For Professional Advisers

Professional advisers play an important role for donors who want to impact our university and our state with their generosity. At the University of Nebraska Foundation, our team is here to help. We represent all four campuses of the University of Nebraska and treasure our role as ambassadors of philanthropy across the state.

If you have a client who wishes to support the university, we can provide sample will or trust language. We can also provide illustrations of the income and tax benefits of a life income gift with sample will language. Most importantly, we provide appreciation and detailed reporting about how the university and our students are better as a result of private gifts. Please contact us any time that we can be of service.

Thank you for the important work you do, transforming your clients’ financial and philanthropic dreams into reality.

Sample Will Language

The correct language for a bequest or beneficiary designation is: the University of Nebraska Foundation, a Nebraska nonprofit corporation.
