The Aksarben Foundation
We’ve been proudly recognizing families with strong Nebraska values and helping to develop the leaders of tomorrow since 1895. By working across the state on areas like education and career training, we’re working to increase and spotlight opportunities right here in Nebraska, to change the landscape of what workforce development means.
At Aksarben, we’re expanding our traditions and growing our influence to support a new generation of leaders, ready to take the heartland into the future.
Workforce Development for Nebraska

For over a century, we have celebrated volunteerism and philanthropy throughout the heartland for the betterment of our communities. We work with over 100 counties across Nebraska and western Iowa to support education and workforce development.
