Serving charitable people and worthy causes

Mission & History 

Founded in 1978, Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation serves charitable people and worthy causes as an IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charitable organization.

We were established by local community leaders to build charitable resources to benefit the people of the North Platte area, primarily Lincoln County and 11 nearby counties in Nebraska.

The Community Foundation has grown steadily.  We now administer more than 300 charitable and scholarship funds.  Each fund has its own charitable purpose and specifications, typically established by the original donor(s).  Well over $1 million is paid out each year from these funds for scholarships and for grants to worthy causes.

This multi-sports facility will also have additional features, including spectator seating, equipment storage and nearby restrooms.

  • Due to the sport's growth and the tournaments that are now held in North Platte, more courts are required in the community. In order to satisfy the demands of the expanding sport in North Platte, the North Platte Pickleball Association and the City of North Platte are collaborating to upgrade the Cody Park Tennis Courts into a multiport facility with ten dedicated pickleball courts.

  • The North Platte Tennis Association is working together with the City of North Platte to raise funds for a new multisport facility in Cody Park with eight new competition-worthy tennis courts along with spectator seating and other amenities
