Our staff has stepped up. Will you join them?

Civic Nebraska staff has pledged at least $1,500 of work hours to our Youth Civic Leadership programs. Will you help us get to $10,000?


Earlier this month, Civic Nebraska had planned to celebrate our youth programs at our Back to School Breakfast fundraiser. Unfortunately, the Delta variant had other plans. So, in lieu of a one-day, in-person fundraiser, we are extending our celebration for an entire month this fall.

The Back to School Giving Campaign will directly support our before- and after-school programs in Lincoln, Omaha, and Raymond Central. Our goal is to raise $10,000.  

We invite you to donate now through Oct. 15 to empower our students, educators, and families. These valued communities benefit from your continued support as they brave the ongoing challenges of COVID-19.

In fact, Civic Nebraska’s staff recently chose to stand with their education colleagues, pledging 58 work hours to the campaign. That amounts to over $1,500 for our youth programs. We hope you will join them, and humbly ask: How much time, in the form of a donation, can you pledge to students, staff, and families?  

Feel free to take a moment to enjoy the story of our youth programs through the video below – and, if you like what you see, please join us as we continue to build our next generation of civic leaders. We can’t do this without you.  

Thank you!  

Kind regards,

Adam Morfeld
Executive Director
