Bio Nebraska Foundation Launches Matched Fundraising Campaign to Support Bioscience Education in Nebraska

The Bio Nebraska Foundation announced today it is launching a fundraising campaign aimed at advancing bioscience education and workforce development in Nebraska.

Thanks to the generous support of The Dr. C.C. and Mabel L. Criss Memorial Foundation, every dollar donated will be matched, up to $10,000.

This campaign seeks to raise $10,000 to support and expand the Foundation’s initiatives dedicated to building a highly educated and diverse workforce in Nebraska’s bioscience industry. This includes providing scholarships to talented Nebraska students pursuing bioscience degrees and offering educational programming to professionals looking to advance their bioscience careers.
The matching gift from The Dr. C.C. and Mabel L. Criss Memorial Foundation means that every donation made to the Bio Nebraska Foundation will be doubled, maximizing the impact of each contribution. This is a great opportunity to ensure that we can continue our work to support the future bioscience workforce in Nebraska.
Individuals and organizations are encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity to double their impact with each donation. Contributions can be made through the Bio Nebraska Foundation’s website with options for one-time or recurring donations, or can be mailed to Bio Nebraska Foundation, PO Box 24802, Omaha, NE  68124. The deadline for matched donations is April 30, 2024.
