The Nebraska Cultural Endowment is the private partner in a public-private partnership with the State of Nebraska created to stabilize funding for the arts and humanities in Nebraska. A contribution to the Cultural Endowment is matched by the income from a public fund at the State of Nebraska designated to support the programs and projects of the Nebraska Arts Council and Humanities Nebraska.
More than 200 programs and organizations across Nebraska have received NAC and HN funding.

"I support the Nebraska Cultural Endowment because it is an opportunity to provide sustainable funding for thought provoking arts and humanities programming for all Nebraskans."
Michelle Dudley - Advisory Board Member, Norfolk
"Because of the state's historic investment and its citizen's contributions, Nebraska is miles ahead of any state in the union for promoting the arts and humanities through the Endowment. This makes me proud to be a citizen of the state, albeit an adoptive one. "
Chuck Trimble - NCE Advisory Board Member, Omaha
"Making arts accessible to everyone is a group project. I am proud to live in a state that supports the arts and am exceedingly grateful for the Nebraska Arts Council and Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The cultural landscape of a state requires a chorus of unique voices working together."
