Donor Levels

Humanities Nebraska welcomes and appreciates gifts of all sizes—all donations make a difference to our programs. Our Annual Fund is divided into the following donor levels:

Friend ($50 and up)

Individual recognition of gifts in our publications begins at the Friend level ($50). A gift of $50 or more also entitles you to receive our annual report, including a special section on the Governor’s Lecture on the Humanities.

Sower ($100)

Silver Sower ($250)

Gold Sower ($500)

Friends, Sower donors, and Patron’s Circle donors are all an essential source of Annual Fund support for humanities programming throughout the state. One Silver Sower gift of $250, for example, would cover all the expenses associated with a scholar from our Speakers Bureau visiting a school in your community and delivering an educational, entertaining program on an important aspect of Nebraska’s history and culture. Please join hundreds of other Nebraskans across the state in supporting the Humanities Nebraska Annual Fund.

Patron’s Circle ($1,000 & up)

PatronCircleGreenThe special Nebraskans who have nurtured the Humanities Nebraska for more than 30 years demonstrate great vision and care for the civic and cultural future of our great state. These generous and visionary patrons see the need to reach out across Nebraska’s vast landscape to provide programs that overcome geography as a barrier to the best of the humanities, and help create statewide access to the humanities through generous financial support.  Please join the Patron’s Circle with a gift of $1,000 or more to Humanities Nebraska, and help ensure that our vision for a vibrant civic and cultural life in Nebraska continues.

Mailing List Policy

Humanities Nebraska will not sell its mailing list to any organization, group or individual, nor will the HN give or loan our donor list to any organization, group or individual without the donors’ permission. The sole exception is occasionally allowing organizations with whom we are collaborating on programming to promote the program to our general mailing list. However, the donors are not identified among the names on the list.
