Nebraska Community Foundation's unique peer mentor network model puts local affiliated fund volunteers at the center of learning and training, rather than outside experts. "At Nebraska Community Foundation, we believe that adults learn best from other adults who are overcoming the same challenges in neighboring communities," said Jeff Yost, President and CEO of Nebraska Community Foundation. "These peer-to-peer interactions have sparked a statewide movement and are producing remarkable results in communities of all sizes."

Adds Yost, "The Annual Celebration marks a rare opportunity for the entire NCF network to gather under one roof, share ideas, plan for action and be inspired by our fellow Nebraskans. Together there's nothing we can't achieve."

Nebraska Community Foundation is a statewide 501(c)(3) organization using charitable giving to build prosperous communities. In the last five years, more than 37,000 contributions have been made to NCF affiliated funds, and more than $127 million has been reinvested to benefit Nebraska communities.
