I am proud of the Nebraska Cultural Endowment and its wonderful mechanism to support arts and humanities, not only in the metropolitan areas, but also to far-flung smaller communities.
The Nebraska Cultural Endowment has reaffirmed my faith in the citizens of Nebraska and their capacity for stewardship and generosity.
Making arts accessible to everyone is a group project. I am proud to live in a state that supports the arts and am exceedingly grateful for the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
Arts are critical to Nebraska’s quality of life and education of our children. Without the help of the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, our ability to make the arts happen would be greatly diminished.
Executive Director, Nebraska Arts Council
Humanities Nebraska helps Nebraskans explore what connects us and makes us human, and what it means to live a life of purpose and meaning. The Nebraska Cultural Endowment is a critical funding partner for achieving this mission all across the state.
Executive Director, Humanities Nebraska
Giving to the Nebraska Cultural Endowment is easy and amplifies your impact by leveraging our privately supported and publicly matched resources to permanently sustain arts & humanities programs statewide.
The NCE’s one-of-a-kind donations match is made possible by legislation which allows annual $1 million increases to a publicly held Cultural Preservation Endowment Fund (CPEF), the NCE’s public matching fund, from 2021 to 2030. This is only possible with your ongoing support.
These annual increases are contingent upon you, our community, coming together to meet the State of Nebraska’s challenge match with tax-deductible donations to the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. Gifts are matched dollar-for-dollar and create impact today and for future generations.
Please contact our Executive Director to discuss how you can ensure an endless tradition of arts & humanities for generations to come.
