Donate to the Suzanne Wise Arts Education Fund

The Suzanne Wise Arts Education Fund was created to honor the long-time director of the Nebraska Arts Council, whose interest in arts education stemmed from her mother, a middle school art teacher in the Lincoln Public Schools.

Thanks to Suzanne’s vision and dedication, the Nebraska Arts Council is an active partner in lifelong learning for all Nebraskans. Earnings from this newly established Fund will underwrite grant programs including School Bus for the Arts, Creative Aging through the Arts, after school arts programs, and artist residencies in schools and community settings.

The Suzanne Wise Arts Education Fund is part of the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, which has a commitment from the state of Nebraska to match all funding up to $10 million through 2030, meaning any gift to the Wise Fund before 2030 is doubled.

Donate to the Suzanne Wise Arts Education Fund

Legacy Donors

Join fellow visionaries by becoming a Legacy Donor. It’s as simple as including the Nebraska Cultural Endowment in your will or another planned gift. Our Legacy Donors transform the future of Nebraska’s cultural fabric to ensure every Nebraskan has access to the arts and humanities for generations to come.

To learn more, download our Legacy Giving Guide or contact our Executive Director to discuss how you can ensure an endless tradition of arts and humanities for generations to come through your own legacy.

Legacy Donors Letter of Intent

Memorial & Tribute Gifts

Make a gift to recognize someone special in your life. Tribute gifts may celebrate a significant anniversary, birthday or other occasion. Memorial gifts are a fitting way to honor the memory of a loved one or friend. The recipient or families of those honored will be notified, and their name will live on in perpetuity with the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.

Gifts of Appreciated Stock

With a charitable gift of appreciated securities, the donation you make and the deduction you get may be greater than they would be if you were to sell the shares and donate the cash proceeds instead.

Please contact our Executive Director to discuss how you can ensure an endless tradition of arts & humanities for generations to come through a gift of appreciated stock.
