What We Do

The focus of Midlands Community Foundation is to assist with community development by improving and enhancing the quality of life for the residents of Sarpy and Cass counties. The Midlands Community Foundation Board of Directors is made up of individuals from the Sarpy and Cass county areas who bring a high degree of involvement to the Foundation and its mission.

Midlands Community Foundation began as a community-based foundation in 1994. Since that time, Midlands Community Foundation has enriched many local organizations through gifts and grants totaling more than $12.0 million. The Foundation has placed an emphasis on prevention and education. It is the Foundation’s belief that we are to serve these “not for profit” organizations for the betterment of the community.

The Foundation accomplishes its mission by awarding grants to non-profit organizations within its service area without regard to economic status or race. The Foundation has a strong commitment toward programs benefiting health, art, culture, community, economic development, education and human services. It is vital that Midlands Community Foundation supports these organizations so they may develop and nurture the community as a whole.

The Foundation raises dollars for its general fund through two major sources each year, the Annual Golf Tournament and the Annual Reflection Ball.

All gifts, large and small, enable Midlands Community Foundation to advance its tradition of financial support to benefit the needs of the community it serves.

Together, we can ensure a bright future for our community.
