Donate to Nebraska Disaster Relief and Recovery

We understand that many of our generous donors want to assist with immediate relief and response to Nebraska flooding. Below is a list of qualified public charities here working on these efforts.

Use caution when donating through crowdfunding websites and social media, as scammers may be looking to take advantage of people’s sympathy. A better option would be to give a tax-deductible donation to a qualified public charity subject to accountability, reporting and oversight.  

Resources for those affected:  Nebraska Emergency Management Agency: University of Nebraska Extension:
