The Campaign for Nebraska. Unlimited Possibilities.

Campaign for Nebraska advances University of Nebraska's service to the state, world


In 2005, the University of Nebraska and University of Nebraska Foundation launched the third comprehensive fundraising campaign in the university’s history. We set a simple but powerful goal: connect private philanthropy to the university’s vital work in education, research and outreach and become the best public university in the country in terms of our impact on the people the university serves.

The impact of the Campaign for Nebraska: Unlimited Possibilities on the campuses and the state is clear. The university is in a better position than at any other time in its history to achieve the vision laid out when the campaign began.

More than $273 million was raised for scholarships – a generous investment that has made a college education more affordable for thousands of students. Enrollment is at a 21-year high, with more top scholars choosing our campuses, and we believe that’s an indication that students and families recognize the University of Nebraska provides an excellent education for a great value. We know unmet need remains, and ensuring that college is within reach for all Nebraskans will continue to be among our highest priorities moving forward.

We are convinced that great things are ahead for this university – because of your support. Thank you.
