About Us


Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation is an IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charitable organization.  Donations are tax-deductible as charitable contributions for income tax purposes to the extent allowed by law. 

In order to fulfill the purposes of the many charitable funds that we administer, we strive to have accurate financial accounting, prudent investment of assets as well as effective and efficient administrative operations.

We invest assets of charitable funds in a manner appropriate to the purpose and time frame of the fund.

We invest long-term funds and endowments for long-term performance.  For the fiscal years beginning June 1980 through May 2023, long-term investments had returns that averaged 7.3% per year.  Our long-term funds were invested 63.7% in stocks and other equities, 32.7% in fixed income securities and 3.6% in cash equivalents as of December 31, 2023.

We invest intermediate-term funds in a more balanced manner than endowments and other long-term funds.  Our intermediate-term and balanced funds were invested 45.3% in stocks, 48.5% in fixed income securities and 6.2% in cash as of December 31, 2023.

We invest short-term funds such as active project funds in a very conservative manner with asset preservation being the paramount goal and interest income a secondary goal.

As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, investment returns are tax-exempt.
