"Now that I'm in my 50s, a key truth has emerged, and it is simply and importantly this: The power and importance of women friends and colleagues in my life. Because when women join together through a shared passion for giving, the world will change for the better."
-Tricia Raikes, Co-founder of the Raikes Family Foundation
Women Investing in Nebraska (WIN) is a group of women dedicated to focused, collective giving. We welcome all women who want to positively impact the state of Nebraska and its university through philanthropy.
WIN joins together Nebraska women to help charities across the state. By encouraging personal growth, learning and collaboration, WIN invests in the lives of our members while offering substantial support to Nebraska's nonprofit organizations.
Women who join WIN contribute $2,400 a year, or $1,200 a year for those age 40 and younger. Annual contributions are pooled, then shared 50/50 between the University of Nebraska and Nebraska-based charities. A one-person, one-vote process will determine what members would like to fund at the university and what Nebraska-based charity they would like to support. Learn more about how it works.
