Dan O'Neill was elected to return to the Community Foundation's Board of Directors.  

Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation primarily serves North Platte, Lincoln County and the 11 nearby counties of Arthur, Custer, Dawson, Frontier, Hayes, Hooker, Keith, Logan, McPherson, Perkins and Thomas.  In the past 12 months, the funds of the Community Foundation paid out well over $2 million in scholarships for college students and grants to non-profit organizations.  

There are many advantages to donors and their advisors in working with the Community Foundation.  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.
