Nebraska Farmers Union Foundation is Accepting Flood Relief Donations

This is the most severe and widespread natural disaster in the history of the state. The frozen ground, heavy snow base, the thicker than normal river ice due to the coldest February on record, and the heavy spring rains set in motion river flooding that set all-time flood stage records for the Missouri, Platte, Elkhorn, and Loup rivers as well as many of their tributaries at the same time. The financial losses for agriculture are currently estimated at $400 million for livestock and $440 million for cropland. By the time farmsteads, equipment, and stored grains – most of which will not be covered by insurance – is counted the estimated losses will grow.

Thousands of Nebraskans suffered both financial and emotional losses as the result of the recent unprecedented 500 year floods in the eastern part of Nebraska and severe blizzards in western Nebraska. Our foundation board will do our best to put the donated money where it will do the most good. You can donate through the PayPal link below, or you donate via mail at:

Just as dying plants and leaves enrich the soil and rebuild its fertility,

the strength of Farmers Union rests on those who have come before. 

It was their planning and work and unity which created Farmers Union,

and defended family farmers for generations.

They built coops, educated their youth and their neighbors,

worked for a good farm policy, and enjoyed the fellowship of their fellow members.

They made an indelible mark on our generation and our nation

and as long as we carry on their work, they live on.
