Press Release: New Executive Director named for Nebraska Cultural Endowment


The Nebraska Cultural Endowment is pleased to announce Marian Fey as its new Executive Director. Marian comes to the Nebraska Cultural Endowment after serving as the Director of Nebraskans for the Arts and she brings to the position extensive non-profit leadership experience and a strong background in the arts and education. She will be responsible for continuing to build the endowment, enhancing statewide relationships and administering the organization.

Pamela Snow, the Executive Director for the past eight years, will retire in June following a period of transition. During her tenure, the private endowment grew from $2.7 million dollars to $9.6 million dollars in gifts and pledges and she helped to increase the visibility of the organization statewide.

Current Nebraska Cultural Endowment Board of Directors President, Marc LeBaron, said

“I would like to thank Pam for her enthusiasm, commitment, and vision to the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. She will be missed greatly. At the same time, we are excited about Marian’s leadership and her ability to enhance the mission of the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.”

Formed in 1998 by community leaders and cultural advocates, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment is the private partner in a public-private partnership with the State of Nebraska organized to provide long-term financial stability for the arts and humanities in Nebraska. The Nebraska Cultural Endowment supports the statewide educational programs and projects of the Nebraska Arts Council and Humanities Nebraska.
