Size: 2.5 cu.ft.; 3 boxes


Formed in 1985, the Nebraska Women’s Foundation provided support for the programs of the Nebraska Commission on the Status of Women and other women’s organizations in Nebraska. The Nebraska Women’s Foundation continued to raise funds in support of the Commission until 2008 when the State Legislature voted to completely defund the Commission. At that time, both entities closed down.


This collection consists of three boxes of records relating to the Nebraska Women’s Foundation. The bulk of the collection dates from 1985 to the early 2000s. Included in the collection are minutes of meetings, membership lists, correspondence, etc. The collection is currently unprocessed, but a basic inventory is available.

Note: For official records of the Nebraska Commission on the Status of Women, see RG0101. See also the library for various publications by the Nebraska Commission on the Status of Women.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
