The Aksarben Foundation

We keep Nebraska traditions alive at the Aksarben Foundation. It’s our goal to develop leaders and recognize the families who are dedicated to Nebraska values. We want to increase opportunities in Nebraska, working across the state on education and workforce development. We know our communities were built on the shoulders of farmers, families, and entrepreneurs. Today at the Aksarben Foundation, we’re building on our traditions by growing our influence and supporting a new generation of workers and leaders to take the heartland into the future.

Past & Present

Aksarben Foundation has been helping the community and the Heartland through its events, scholarships and community services since 1895. Take a journey through our past and see how Nebraska and western Iowa have changed through the years.
