About Nebraska Children
Nebraska Children and Families Foundation supports children, young adults, and families with the overall goal of giving our state's kids what they need to thrive. We do this by building strong communities that support families so their children can grow up to be successful, productive adults.
Create positive change for Nebraska’s children through community engagement.
A Nebraska where all children will have the resources and support to thrive.
Values in Action
We believe in strengthening families before problems start.
We believe every child deserves the chance to thrive, no matter where they live or their race/ethnicity.
We believe it takes all of us to create a Nebraska where all children can thrive. That’s why we leverage funds from both public and private sectors, pool talent from all around the communities we work with, and structure initiatives around a collective impact effort designed to maximize effectiveness of limited resources.
Our Position on Race Equity
At Nebraska Children, we recognize that racism is a root cause of systemic problems, and racial justice is necessary for systems change. Nebraska Children’s mission and values are driven by a goal of a Nebraska where all children, young people and families can thrive; and we know this will not happen in communities where racial and ethnic inequalities exist. We commit to repairing and eradicating racial injustice. Nebraska Children pursues individual, programmatic, and system-level change with the goal of ensuring equitable access to supports which promote well-being and positive outcomes for all, regardless of race. To achieve this, race equity is not an activity to perform, but must be a central tenet for all of our work.
