HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT FORMER COLLEGE ATHLETES?
GET INVOLVED AND ASSIST FORMER COLLEGE ATHLETES FROM ACROSS THE STATE OF NEBRASKA
The Nebraska Greats Foundation offers athletes who lettered in a varsity sport at any one of the 16 four-year Nebraska-based colleges and universities a vital source of financial support for medical and educational needs.
Former athletes have dedicated their time and energy to entertaining and inspiring us through their incredible athletic abilities. But many of these athletes struggle to afford healthcare after retiring from their sport.
If Nebraskans were aware of former athletes in need, we believe they would find this unacceptable and jump in to help. Our sincere goal is to give these athletes access to the care and assistance they deserve to continue leading healthy and active lifestyles. With your incredible support, we can help these deserving athletes stay healthy for years.
YOU CAN GIVE
As fans, we witness the thrills and victories of college athletes representing their schools with pride, but we don’t see the other side of the story. While in school, top-quality health care is provided in most cases, but when they leave the arena of competition, that support system disappears. That’s where our nonprofit organization steps in.
The Nebraska Greats Foundation is dedicated to ensuring every former collegiate athlete receives the care they deserve. With your contribution, you can truly impact someone’s life.
Whether you give a one-time donation or become a monthly contributor, your financial gift will go towards providing services that can change someone’s life. Plus, donations are tax-deductible so that you can feel good about your contribution and its positive impact.
Refer an athlete who needs help
In the world of college sports, injuries are practically ubiquitous. Whether it’s torn ligaments, broken bones, or nagging chronic pain, recovery can often come at a steep price. It can be an incredibly daunting situation for athletes without the financial resources to pay for medical treatment.
Pride often gets in the way of these athletes asking for the help they need, which means one of the most thoughtful things you can do is refer athletes you know need medical care and assistance.
In addition, the injuries do not need to stem directly from their playing days. We have helped many people whose medical needs began decades after their playing days ended. Our team will contact the athlete directly and work with them to find a solution that works for their health and budget.
