Impact

Investing in
the Future

While maintaining the current $21 million corpus, earnings from these private and public investments support statewide arts & humanities projects and programs.

Of the $21 million, $10.5 million is held by the State of Nebraska and $10.5 million is managed privately by the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.

Only through your support, can we access this one-of-a-kind match with the State of Nebraska.

Since inception, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment has distributed over $13.7 million to fund arts & humanities programs in our state.

Please contact Kyle Cartwright to discuss how you can ensure an endless tradition of arts & humanities for generations to come.
