2016 Nebraska Now exhibitions are sponsored by Deanna & Fred Bosselman.
In LB957, the Nebraska Legislature voted to appropriate $500,000 a year for 10 years to the Cultural Preservation Endowment Fund, which is the state portion of the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. These funds must be matched with private donations raised by the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, with earnings distributed to support arts and cultural programs in the state.
The Nebraska Cultural Endowment works because the Nebraska Arts Council and Humanities Nebraska can only be allocated the earnings from the Endowment if they are matched dollar-for-dollar from private donations. The principal remains in the state treasury. This system has worked for many years. Thanks to this public/private match, over $8.3 million dollars has been distributed to arts organizations statewide without additional state or federal support.
LB957 was passed by the Legislature on yesterday and presented to Governor Pete Ricketts. We need your help in contacting the Governor's office.
Please encourage Governor Ricketts to keep the Cultural Preservation Endowment Fund provision as part of LB957 to benefit arts and humanities programs in this private-public partnership.
