We advance the University of Nebraska by building relationships, connecting the philanthropic visions of donors with the goals of the university, and providing responsible stewardship of gifts from those passionate about the university and its mission.
Since 1936, the University of Nebraska Foundation has existed to accomplish one goal - to advance the University of Nebraska. While independent from the university, we are intrinsically linked to it, connecting the dreams and passions of donors to the mission of the university, and stewarding donor generosity across its four campuses.
