At Nebraska, the standard is comprehensive excellence. The Nebraska Leadership Society embodies that same core standard as our members lead with unyielding support of our student-athletes and athletic programs. Nebraska Leadership Society is comprised of donors who give more than $25,000 annually or have given in excess of $1 million lifetime to key athletic priorities. To date, Nebraska Leadership Society members have donated more than $150 million to Nebraska Athletics, making an immeasurable impact on our student-athletes and our athletic programs.
A 315,000-square-foot athletic performance facility located on the northeast side of Memorial Stadium will serve as the future training home of Nebraska Football and include the primary student-athlete dining center and academic center for all 22 sports. The Go Big Campaign once again establishes Nebraska as the gold standard for growth and commitment to student-athletes.
Our people will always be our greatest asset. Each year, thousands of donors give generously to sport-specific experience funds and for priority seating in our stadiums. This support is the steady force behind pioneering one of the most decorated and storied athletic programs in the country.
Nebraska Athletics aims to assemble the best academic support package through the N-Vest Fund to recruit and retain the best and brightest student-athletes from across our state and country. In 2022, Nebraska Athletics will begin applying the $5,980 to the financial aid account of all qualifying scholarship student-athletes, regardless of percentage of aid.
The Nebraska Leadership Society recognizes donors that make comprehensive annual commitments of at least $25,000 or have given in excess of $1 million lifetime to key athletics funding priorities. This includes priority seating gifts, donations to the annual fund and commitments towards capital improvements and endowed funds, to name a few. We are proud to offer a series of exclusive benefits and one-of-a-kind experiences for our annual members and lifetime members:

“ None of us achieve or reach our goals on our own. It is my honor and with pleasure we support Husker student-athletes by being a member of the Nebraska Leadership Society, so students can achieve their goals and realize their championship aspirations in athletics and in life. ”
“ Supporting the Huskers has been a multigenerational commitment for my family. We want to do our part to ensure our student-athletes and coaches have what is needed to excel in this rapidly changing intercollegiate athletics landscape. Being members of the Nebraska Leadership Society has given us a better connection to the Husker Athletics leadership team. ”
“ We support Husker Athletics as Nebraska Leadership Society members because we are proud to be Huskers and believe the current leadership is committed to bring Nebraska back to national prominence. Our annual support and gifts towards facility improvements are investments in the future and give our athletics programs the best opportunity to compete for championships. ”
