  • ​​The Nebraska Community Foundation consists of 223 affiliated funds, like the Rock County Community Fund - and these funds serve citizens in over 77 Nebraska counties.

  • The Nebraska Community Foundation estimates between 2010 and 2020 nearly $67 MM in wealth will be transferred in Rock County; and between 2010 and 2060 over $550 MM in wealth will be transferred in Rock County.

  • If just 5% of this wealth transfer would be allocated to the Rock County community Fund Endowment, the Endowment balance would exceed $25 MM in funds to help maintain and propel the growth of Rock County in the future.
