Nebraska Community Foundation: New Resources for the New Year
This past December was one for the record books for generous Nebraskans.
Donors made 1,901 contributions, the second highest in a single month ever, to Nebraska Community Foundation (NebraskaHometown.org) and its affiliated funds. Some major gifts boosted the overall total for a single month far past previous milestones. NCF received $7.4 million in December 2016. Thanks to all of the hard-working volunteers, generous donors, and everyone who is dreaming big for 2017!
Now is the perfect time to check out NCF’s new resource for planning and protecting family financial wellbeing into the future. More than half of American adults don’t have a will or other estate plan in place. Visit Nebcommfound.GiftLegacy.com to download or request a free wills guide. It’s full of useful information and templates to record your family’s information, accounts, assets, liabilities and charitable intentions. The new “Planning Your Legacy” guide is a tool to plan for providing for your family and supporting the community you care about.
Nebraska Community Foundation (NebraskaHometown.org) is a statewide 501(c)(3) organization using charitable giving to build prosperous communities. NCF provides training, strategic development, gift planning assistance and financial management to volunteer leaders of community-based, organizational and donor-advised funds serving more than 250 hometowns.
