The Nebraska Greats Foundation Supports a York College Soccer Player

The Nebraska Greats Foundation, which aids current and former Nebraska college or university athletes has provided a grant to Carlos Ortega a sophomore Midfielder from York College.  Carlos is originally from Margarita Island, Venezuela.

Carlos applied for a grant to assist him with medical bills stemming from an injury he suffered while competing.  The NGF provided funds to a provider for services not covered by insurance.

Said Carlos “I want to thank the Nebraska Greats Foundation for all your help and support.  I truly appreciate what the NGF does for athletes in need.  It will allow me to stay in school to continue competing and getting a college education.”

The NGF a 501C-3 non profit seeks applications from any former letter winning athlete who may have a medical need and a financial challenge.   The NGF has provided over $500,000 in qualified grants since its founding in 2014.
