Experienced administration of charitable funds
We are experienced in the administration of virtually all kinds of charitable funds, including gift annuities, scholarship funds, field-of-interest funds, donor-advised funds and funds that benefit specific agencies.
Personalized, tailored services
Our personalized donor services are tailored to meet unique and specific charitable goals and circumstances of charitable people and organizations.
Lasting legacy endowments
We help generous people leave lasting legacy endowments that provide ongoing funding to worthy causes, even long after the original benefactors have passed away.
For more than three decades, we have invested charitable funds prudently for investment returns in order to make distributions to worthy causes and to grow individual charitable funds. Investment returns are tax-exempt and have averaged 8.95 percent per year.
Charitable gift planning
We help charitable people as well as attorneys and other professional advisors consider options and tax benefits related to charitable giving.
Grant making and scholarship awards
During the most recent fiscal year, we paid out more than $600,000 in scholarships and distributions to non-profit organizations from the funds we administer. These payments were made possible by the generosity of donors as well as by earnings on invested funds. Since inception, more than $8 million has been distributed to worthy causes from charitable funds!
Because Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public charitable organization, donations to funds here are deductible as charitable contributions to the fullest extent allowed. Also, investment earnings within each charitable fund are tax-exempt.
Memorial and tribute gifts
You can make a gift in honor of or in memory of a special person. We will notify the appropriate person of your thoughtfulness with no dollar amount mentioned. You can direct us to place your gift in virtually any of the funds that we administer. Also, you may consider establishing a new charitable fund.
Flexibility to accept nearly any kind of gift
We have experience in accepting all kinds of gifts, including stock, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, life insurance policies and I.R.A. distributions. In many cases, donors gain additional benefits by giving appreciated property.
We offer cost-effective services because our size benefits from economies of scale. Also, an endowment for operation helps to cover costs of administration.
