What We Do
The Bellevue University Foundation advances the university’s non-profit mission to become the premier open access university in Nebraska and the United States. The Foundation is committed to connecting donors and enlightened constituents to aspects of the mission that they are passionate about and building innovative results-oriented partnerships that change students’ lives for the better.
Specifically, the Foundation plays a critical role in connecting community members who seek to make an investment in supporting students through individual scholarships and grants, and through programs such as the university’s emergency grant program that helps students overcome unforeseen obstacles and the American Dream Scholarship program which provides financial support to those who have the motivation, desire and ability to complete a degree if given the opportunity. Many scholarship recipients are first-generation college students, returning older students, single parents and others faced with financial constraints.
