Since its creation in 2011, Women Investing in Nebraska (WIN) members have pooled their gifts to grant more than $1.9 million to 24 University of Nebraska and Nebraska nonprofit projects. This collective giving group seeks out bold, innovative projects addressing issues of importance to Nebraskans and makes two grants each year through a member-driven vetting and voting processes.

Membership is open to women who want to positively impact Nebraska and its university through philanthropy, learn about issues that matter to Nebraskans and experience collective giving and grantmaking. 

Membership levels are $500, $1,200 or $2,400 a year and pooled funds are divided equally between a University of Nebraska project and a Nebraska nonprofit project each year. All members of record on June 30 are eligible to vote on grants.

Memberships can be paid through credit or debit transactions by clicking the Join button below, via payroll deduction for University of Nebraska and University of Nebraska Foundation employees, or by check made out to UNF Charitable Gift Fund, with WIN or Women Investing in Nebraska noted in the memo line. Should you be interested in making a gift using stock, IRA or other financial tools, please contact us at the email below.

WIN operates in partnership with the University of Nebraska Foundation and the UNF Charitable Gift Fund to support women philanthropists through education, engagement and empowerment.

Thank you for your interest in WIN. We hope you will join us in making a difference in Nebraska.
