This is the Nebraska Athletics Leadership Society.

Part of the Team

Launched in 2016, the Nebraska Athletics Leadership Society is the annual philanthropic giving program in support of the Student-Athlete Experience Fund. This comprehensive program is designed to connect our most generous investors, creating a network of alumni, friends, family and business partners.

Our goal is to give members of the Leadership Society a unique, in-depth view of Nebraska Athletics. Your investment in the future is transformational, changing how we attract the brightest students and build championship-caliber programs.

I already make gifts tied to my seating and parking, do they apply toward the Leadership Society?

Yes. All annual-based gifts connected to ticketing and parking apply toward your Leadership Society overall annual pledge. If your annual commitment is less than $25,000 per year, you can make gifts toward the Student-Athlete Experience Fund to reach the giving level associated with the Leadership Society.

Do I still earn priority points for making additional gifts toward the Leadership Society?

All gifts received in the current drive year accrue priority points based on the standard three points for every $100 donated. The priority points and lifetime giving will apply for future ticketing and parking moves and additions. You may choose not to receive priority points, which may improve the tax deductibility of your gift.

How long is my commitment and when does it need to be paid in full?

Leadership Society membership follows the same timelines associated with the Nebraska Athletics Development & Ticketing donation timeline. All gifts tied to tickets and parking are due April 1. Gifts above and beyond the ticketing and parking are due in full by June 30. However, you are welcome to join the society anytime during the giving year cycle. Your membership and associated amenities will run from July 1-June 30 of the fiscal year. This is an annual membership program, so there is no long-term pledge commitment.

*All University of Nebraska Foundation Giving Societies are based upon comprehensive lifetime giving.
