Contributing to Community

My family always gave to community with heart, time, and treasure and taught me by example to follow their footsteps.

I founded the Karen Dunning Fund Endowment at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in 1995. It has provided annual scholarships in the Women and Gender Studies department.  I have been blessed to attend several annual ceremonies and meet the worthy recipients.  It is a great honor to play a part.
