Join us for next week’s NCompass Live, “The Kreutz Bennett Donor-Advised Fund: Grants to Nebraska’s Small-Town Public Libraries”, on Wednesday, August 3, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.
Since 2012 the Kreutz Bennett Donor-Advised Fund has granted over $330,000 to Nebraska’s small-town public libraries. Retired education professor Shirley Kreutz Bennett established this fund with Nebraska Community Foundation to benefit small Nebraska towns of the kind in which she grew up. Shirley’s nieces and nephews serve as Fund Advisory Committee members and meet each year with staff of Nebraska Community Foundation and of the Nebraska Library Commission to choose recipients. They make grants for planning (leading to accreditation); program and service enhancement; and facilities.
Join Reggi Carlson (Nebraska Community Foundation), Richard Miller, Jane Stone (a niece of Shirley Kreutz Bennett), and library directors from a number of grant-recipient libraries for this informative program.
Presenters: Richard Miller, Library Development Director, Nebraska Library Commission; Reggi Carlson, Communications Director, Nebraska Community Foundation; Jane Stone, Shirley Kreutz Bennett’s niece; Anne Quigley, Director, Valentine Public Library; Tammy Thiem, Director, Genoa Public Library.
