Nebraska Community Foundation (NCF, NebraskaHometown.org) welcomes Anders Olson to its talented team of professionals committed to building stronger communities and a Greater Nebraska.
Olson joins NCF as director of peer learning, a role in which he will train, coach, mentor, and support volunteers and staff to implement educational content throughout NCF’s network of more than 270 communities.
Anders previously worked for NCF as an affiliated fund development coordinator for communities in northeast and north central Nebraska. He has been an active member (and currently serves as co-chair) of Connecting Young Nebraskans, an affiliated fund of Nebraska Community Foundation. His enthusiasm for NCF’s mission made him an ideal fit for the position.
“The NCF environment was the perfect training ground for me to become a skilled facilitator, learn how to develop training sessions for a wide range of audiences and form a network of personal and professional contacts across the state,” Anders said. “Even during my time away from the organization, I consistently draw from my rich NCF experiences when faced with new situations to this day.”
Nebraska Community Foundation unleashes abundant local assets, inspires charitable giving and connects ambitious people to build stronger communities and a Greater Nebraska. Headquartered in Lincoln, the Foundation serves communities, donors, and organizations by providing financial management, strategic development, education, and training to a statewide network of 1,500 volunteers serving more than 270 communities.
