Join Us in Keeping Nebraska History Alive.

At the Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation, we support the preservation, interpretation, and appreciation of Nebraska history. As a 501(c)(3) organization, we work directly with donors on their funding priorities in support of countless Nebraska State Historical Society (NSHS) programs, projects, and events. The Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation is especially grateful to those who have contributed to the NSHS through the Foundation throughout our sixty-eight year history.
