KSARBEN FOUNDATION

A network of business and community leaders working across the state on education and workforce development.

T

HE AKSARBEN FOUNDATION was founded over 120 years ago by a network of leaders whose sole purpose was addressing the biggest issues facing the state of Nebraska. Over time, these issues have changed in scope and urgency, but today our leadership is expanding to address one of the most critical issues the state has faced thus far: workforce development. Working as a unified network of business, civic and philanthropic leaders, Aksarben focuses on the betterment of the heartland through education by funding scholarships for deserving youth. Aksarben supports heartland communities through the funding of grants helping to address the needs of each community. Aksarben recognizes and celebrates volunteerism, philanthropy and community at the annual Aksarben Ball, and honors agricultural heritage through Pioneer and Heritage Farm Family Awards. Honoring who we’ve been, celebrating who we are, and supporting where we’re going are all important aspects of the Aksarben mission. We are dedicated to supporting and nurturing the next generation through workforce development and talent retention across the state. The Aksarben Foundation is able to fund these grants and great works through the generosity of our gracious donors. Membership opportunities are available through Aksarben Friends and Aksarben Ambassadors, open to everyone.

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES: Donations Donations may be made to the Aksarben Foundation and directed to a specific program, or to be used to support any Aksarben Foundation work. Specific programs include: Scholarships to 2-year or 4-year colleges and universities, Aksarben Friends Community Grants for projects under $10,000, and Aksarben Councillors Community Grants for projects greater than $10,000. Donations may also be directed toward Aksarben’s Workforce Development initiative, or to the work of honoring and celebrating heartland families for their volunteerism. VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: Aksarben Ambassadors Aksarben is always looking to expand our network of Aksarben Ambassadors. Aksarben Ambassadors are volunteers throughout the state of Nebraska who help champion the mission of the Aksarben Foundation by informing their neighborhoods and communities of the initiatives of Aksarben. Aksarben Ambassadors regularly communicate with the Aksarben Foundation to report on community projects in need of assistance, community members deserving of recognition, and to help coordinate meet-and-greet events between the Foundation and their communities throughout the year.

Other Aksarben groups and committees are open for nominations, and donations are accepted for specific Aksarben programs or in the form of planned Legacy Gifts. One hundred percent of all donations are tax-deductible and used entirely for funding the program for which they are specified.
