The University of Nebraska Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization created in 1936 by community leaders who wanted to create excellence at the university not possible through state funding alone. We manage more than 11,000 donor funds, an endowment ranked in the top 25 among public universities and keep our cost of fundraising below that of our peers.
Our vision is to be recognized as the trusted partner of those wishing to support the University of Nebraska.
Only in Nebraska: A Campaign for Our University’s Future was launched to the public Nov. 18, 2022, by the University of Nebraska Foundation. The campaign, the largest in university history, has two goals: 150,000 unique donors and $3 billion raised over a nine-year period.
