When students in public schools do well, the community benefits from a more prepared workforce, future economic growth, lower incarceration rates and more engaged citizens for our future communities. When public schools do well, we all benefit. Education impacts every aspect of our civic life and with your support for our public schools, we can help create a vibrant, successful community and state.

Share the news.

Know of something awesome going on at a public school in your community? Tell your friends, family, colleagues, neighbors – anyone who will listen. Raise awareness about the good things happening in public schools every day both on- and off-line. Spread the word.
  • Keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Sign up for our newsletter and stay informed on what’s going on in Nebraska public schools.
  • Watch our films and send them to your friends.

Share your time.

Whether you can drop by once a week, once a month, or once in a while, ask your local school what they could do if they had more time or more hands on deck.
  • Tour a school in your neighborhood. Showing interest in what’s going on at the school lets students, teachers and administrators know the community is behind them.
  • Write a thank you note. Take a minute and show your appreciation for our teachers.
  • Tutor a student. Use your talents to help students develop theirs.

Share your skills.

Whether you’re a graphic designer, pastry chef, construction manager, marketing professional, homemaker, skateboarder or lawyer, we all have skills that we could share with a school in our community. Make a call to a school and learn how you can help.

  • Schedule your company’s career day. Visit a classroom and teach students about the work you do. Inspire them to pursue a career path that interests them.
  • Invite classrooms into your office. Dedicate one hour to talk to students about your industry. Introduce them to what happens in your profession.
  • Be supportive. Encourage and support employees and co-workers who donate their time to help local students learn.

  • Provide supplies. Call the principal at a school in your neighborhood and ask what the school needs and how you can contribute. A simple donation can go a long way – from glue sticks to extra coats, it all helps our teachers and students focus on learning.
  • Donate directly to a school’s emergency fund. Whether it’s 100, 50 or 5 dollars, whatever you can give might seem like a small gift, but this money can make a big difference and help keep students ready and able to learn.
  • Give local public schools funds. These organizations specialize in distributing donations and gifts directly to schools in need. Call your local school to find out which organizations they work with to accept monetary donations.
