Rising to the Moment

Nebraska Access, Arts, Economic Development, Humanities, Statewide

In 2020, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment was proud to play an unprecedented role in providing relief for Nebraska’s arts and humanities organizations statewide, many of whom were at risk of closing due to crushing revenue losses due to the ongoing pandemic. Thanks to consistent donor support and effective fund stewardship, the NCE Board of Directors voted to release a “special distribution” of $300,000 to support Nebraska’s cultural infrastructure.

The Nebraska Arts Council and Humanities Nebraska deployed these funds to sustain organizations vital to Nebraska’s cultural economy and quality of life, allowing many of our partners to remain afloat and to invest in delivering programs in new, innovative ways.
