Not all assets are created equal. Some are best left to children, others to charity. Nebraska Community Foundation (NCF, is helping generous Nebraskans help their families and their hometowns with tax-wise charitable giving strategies that allow them to leave a legacy.

Tax season is upon us and it’s a great time to take inventory of your assets, how they might be used to benefit family, and the charitable causes you care about in the future.

In November 2021, Nebraska Community Foundation launched the Five to Thrive movement, a charitable giving initiative that invites generous Nebraskans to consider leaving just five percent of their assets to a favorite Nebraska hometown or to Nebraska Community Foundation to benefit all Nebraska communities. If all Nebraskans did this, it would equate to $5 billion in the next decade and $47.5 billion over the next half-century that could be used to further community and economic development and pursue the dreams of the future we can’t even imagine in 2023.
