Nebraska Community Foundation to Host Annual Celebration
Nebraska Community Foundation (www.nebcommfound.org) will hold its Annual Celebration on November 2 in La Vista at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center. All who are passionate about the future of Greater Nebraska are invited to attend.
Themed “Together a Greater Nebraska,” the celebration includes training for NCF’s 220 affiliated funds and an expo highlighting the work of over 1,500 volunteers in the NCF network. The celebration culminates with a banquet, open to the public, that will highlight the achievements of ambitious Nebraskans who are building stronger more prosperous communities across the state through Nebraska Community Foundation and their communities’ respective affiliated funds.
Training, expo and banquet reservations are now being accepted at nebraskacommunityfoundation.regfox.com/celebration. The deadline to register is October 20.
Centered on the theme “Together a Greater Nebraska,” this year’s affiliated fund training will focus on community and economic development issues that are important to rural communities like local food in schools, early childhood development, workforce and leadership development, and youth engagement. Nebraska Community Foundation’s unique peer mentor network model puts local affiliated fund volunteers at the center of learning and training, rather than outside experts.
Nebraska Community Foundation is a statewide 501(c)(3) organization using charitable giving to build prosperous communities. In the last five years, more than 37,000 contributions have been made to NCF affiliated funds, and more than $127 million has been reinvested to benefit Nebraska communities.
