Our Funds

When you donate to the General Fund, your contribution will be directed to where the need is greatest. However, if you wish to limit, or designate, your gift to a specific area of our mission, you may choose a defined fund. Our Fund Development team would be honored to discuss options with you to ensure your wishes are met with the greatest benefit to the mission.

General Fund

Gifts will be allocated where the impact is greatest. This fund is provided for all contributions given to Outlook Nebraska without a specific intention or purpose.  They are undesignated and unrestricted.

Employment Growth Fund

Gifts will help support the employment opportunities and job readiness of people who are blind and visually impaired. This may be within the existing enterprise, or may be innovative employment areas identified by the organization as it grows and expands.

Enrichment Fund

Gifts will help support the Enrichment Programs offered at Outlook Nebraska:  adaptive technology training, cultural experiences, recreational opportunities, and, community awareness and engagement for the needs and capacities of individuals who are blind or visually impaired.

Capital Vision Fund

Gifts will provide the start-up or supportive funding for capital improvements, such as building enhancements and asset purchases when the opportunity arises.  The expenditure of these funds will be approved by the Board of Directors.

The Legacy Fund

Gifts will support the sustainability and perpetuity of the mission of the organization. Within this permanently restricted fund, the principal is invested according to the Board-approved investment policy and the expenditures of the investment income.
