Welcome to the Ethel S. Abbott Charitable Foundation. This private foundation strives to give a helping hand to those 501(C)(3) organizations that are trying to make a difference in people's lives. Requests have been granted through the years to organizations with diverse areas of focus, such as: education, the arts, the environment, programs that serve disadvantaged children, human services, sports and wellness programs. The Ethel S. Abbott Charitable Foundation looks at each grant request uniquely for its potential to impact people's lives and to ultimately make a difference in the community.
Typically, the Ethel S. Abbott Charitable Foundation's primary grant area is in Western Nebraska and the Omaha and Lincoln vicinity. These areas represent where Mrs. Abbott spent the majority of her life. It is the foundation's desire to continue to touch people's lives through the generosity and foresight of Mrs. Abbott, just as she did during her lifetime.
