The Abel Foundation
The Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Nebraska Book Company (NEBCO), funds projects in Nebraska, primarily in Lincoln and Lancaster County as well as in communities where NEBCO and its affiliated companies have operations. Grants are awarded in the following areas: health and human services, education, civic/community, and the environment. Education grants are targeted at post-secondary education. Civic/community grants provide support for projects that enhance the community as a whole, such as “brick and mortar” projects. Arts and culture grants support arts and humanities programs that will enhance the community through education, performance, and creativity. Environmental grants support projects that protect and teach about endangered or threatened species and the natural environment they require to survive. Some additional information can be found on the Web site.
