A lot has changed since 1895.
A lot hasn’t.
Hard work; it’s what Nebraskan’s are known for. At Aksarben, we began working hard in 1895 to address the most pressing needs of the state. Since the first Aksarben Ball in 1895, to the first Aksarben Stock Show in 1927 and the thousands of ways we’ve impacted the heartland since. We have awarded over $65 million in scholarships and community grants and we’re not finished yet.

Aksarben Foundation’s Glorious Past
Aksarben has continually adapted its mission, programs and operation to meet the changing needs and promote the well-being of the heartland. The seeds of the organization that would come to be known as Aksarben were sown in the midst of calamitous economic conditions beginning in the mid-1890s.
