A curriculum-based program focused on cultivating leaders in our community. 


A Challenge for the Future







Little did they know that this relatively small "ask" would initiate a much larger, much deeper conversation about investing in the future of the Leadership Nebraska City program -- and ultimately, investing in the people of our community. 

A short time later, the Nebraska City Community Foundation Fund (NCCFF) issued a challenge grant to Leadership Nebraska City, with guidelines as follows:

  • Leadership Nebraska City raises $10,000; NCCFF matches $5,000.

  • Once the minimum goal is met, NCCFF will match $500 for each $1,000 in additional funds raised by Leadership Nebraska City up to an additional $5,000.

  • Final goal: $20,000 is raised by LNC; NCCFF will match $10,000

  • Total Amount Raised: $30,000


How will Leadership Nebraska City use $30,000?

  • Create an Endowment Fund with earnings to secure the financial future and continuation of the Leadership Nebraska City program.

  • Provide skills training sessions for current classes, Alumni, and the greater community.

  • Provide scholarships for future class members.
