Financial support, involvement and service
for the Bellevue, Nebraska community

The Bellevue Community Foundation was formed by community leaders and caring citizens in May 2012 to benefit the diverse needs of Bellevue by providing financial support, involvement and service. The Foundation’s mission is to ignite passion, inspire action and create capital to invest in Bellevue. The Foundation will build on great work by the City, the County, the school district, the business community, and so many non-profits, policymakers, and individual Bellevue residents.

Funds raised will help support important local issues and programs such as beautification, youth activities, parks, arts and culture, the environment, health and human services, economic development, and local non-profits. ALL Bellevue Community Foundation funds will support Bellevue’s local needs. We make it easy to support what you love and where you live. Make a plan to make a difference today.
