Community Foundation elects officers for 2017-18
Kimberly Steger was elected president of Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation for its new fiscal year, succeeding Larry Stobbs. Other officers elected by the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors are: J. Patrick Keenan, vice president, and Dan O’Neill, secretary-treasurer.
“It’s wonderful how the Community Foundation helps generous people, worthy nonprofits and good projects.” Steger said. While it continues to grow, the Community Foundation currently administers more than 275 separate charitable and scholarship funds.
Steger is Vice President and Commercial Loan Officer at Equitable Bank in North Platte. She grew up on a ranch in western South Dakota and graduated from Blackhills State University in South Dakota. She and her husband Gary moved to North Platte in 1982 and raised two children here, Jordan and Taylor.
Steger has served ten years on the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors. “It’s a very rewarding board to serve on,” she said.
She also serves on the North Platte Quality Growth Fund Citizen’s Review Committee and is a member of North Platte Chamber Hostesses and North Platte Rotary Club.
Steger previously served on and chaired the North Platte Area Chamber and Development Board as well as the Salvation Army Advisory Committee.
Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation primarily serves North Platte, Lincoln County and the eight adjacent counties. In the past 12 months, the funds of the Community Foundation paid out well over $1 million in scholarships for college students and grants to non-profit organizations. The Community Foundation administers charitable funds for many nonprofit organizations.
“There are many advantages to donors and their advisors in working with the Community Foundation,” according to Eric Seacrest, Executive Director. “Most of the funds administered by the Community Foundation are lasting legacies for donors that support charitable causes in a tax-advantaged manner.” The Community Foundation also administers charitable funds for many other nonprofit organizations.
