Midlands Community Foundation raised more than $38,000 at its 2012 golf tournament at Platteview Country Club on Monday, May 21.

The funds raised at this year’s tournament will continue to endow the Children in Crisis Field of Interest Fund created at Midlands Community Foundation in 2010.  This fund will address a range of issues affecting children in Sarpy and Cass counties, including but not limited to basic food, shelter, child abuse, and educational and artistic enrichment opportunities.  It will, over time, create opportunities for many nonprofit organizations that help children in our community.  Unlike one-time donations to specific organizations, Field of Interest Funds continue to grow and support the particular field of interest year after year.  All contributions to a Field of Interest Fund are added to the principal of the fund and will continue to benefit the intended charitable cause into the future.

The mission of Midlands Community Foundation is to benefit the diverse needs of the Sarpy and Cass county communities by providing financial support, involvement and service.  Over the last 30 years, the Foundation has served as a leader by helping to identify community needs and partnering with corporate and individual donors to make the most of their charitable dollars.
