As you consider your financial support of Humanities Nebraska and other nonprofits, we know that there is great interest in the federal tax reform that will take effect in 2018, and what impact the reduced tax incentive might have on charitable giving. At Humanities Nebraska, we are grateful that our donors are supporting us out of the belief in our mission and our work, and in the value of the humanities in the lives of all Nebraskans. Thank you for your support!
